Peter Idusogie today announced his intention to run for the US Senate seat being vacated by Mark Dayton.

In an exclusive interview with Wendy Wilde on Inside Minnesota Politics, Idusogie said he will run as an independent candidate "independent of the Democratic Party, independent of the Republican Party, and independent of the Independence party".

Idusogie has been the host of the Inside Minnesota podcast since it was launched nearly a year ago.

On the program, Idusogie said he would make his formal announcement in the coming weeks. He is still assembling his campaign team. He promised a bold campaign focusing on "righteousness and justice for all" and said one of his primary goals is a national health care bill for America.

Listen as Peter Idusogie discusses with Wendy Wilde why he's running and how he plans to overcome the advantages his opponents have in money and name recognition.

Inside Minnesota Politics Producer Mike McIntee issued the following statement:

"To avoid even the appearance of any conflict of interest, Peter and I have decided it is best that he no longer host Inside Minnesota Politics. However, the podcast will continue with its mission to report on Minnesota politics including interviewing candidates, and tackling those tough issues we face today in our democracy.

"Like any other US Senate candidate, Peter will be welcome as an occasional guest at the Inside Minnesota Politics microphone.

"I'm happy to report that long-time radio talk show host Wendy Wilde has agreed to help out with hosting the show. Wendy most recently was the morning host on Air America Minnesota and before that worked for WCCO-AM.

"I thank Peter for the inspiration he has brought our podcast listeners and me. I look forward to maintaining the high level of quality Peter has brought to Inside Minnesota Politics with the help of the incredibly knowledgeable and talented Wendy Wilde."
