It looks like Lt. Gov. Tina Smith will be leaving her position alongside Gov. Mark Dayton, come 2019.
She made an announcement Friday, explaining she will not be joining the field of Democrats in the 2018 race for governor.
"After careful consideration, and many conversations with family and friends, I have decided not to run for Governor in 2018," her post begins.
It goes on to say she'll continue to work hard and stand with Dayton, "a principled leader who never fails to put people before politics," until the term is complete.
Smith also plans to do some work for the candidates – at least the Democrat ones.
"I also will work as hard as I can to elect a Democrat for Governor in 2018, because I believe we have the best ideas for how to create jobs and opportunity for everyone in Minnesota," according to her Facebook post.
Smith's post goes on to praise Minnesota, saying she believes it's the best place in the country to live.
"Many, many thanks to my friends all over the state who have encouraged me to run. I never expected nor planned to serve in elected office, but it is my joy and my honor to serve the people of Minnesota."
Dayton has said he intends to finish his term, which ends in January 2019.
So who is running?
House Speaker Kurt Daudt is also a potential candidate.
