Michael Brodkorb is the former deputy chair of the MNGOP. He has also served as field staff, communications staff, and research director for MNGOP. He has been involved in campaign work for many state and federal-level candidates (Boschwitz, Coleman, Kennedy, and more). Michael is now working a professional researcher. He also authored a book called The Girls Are Gone, about two girls that went missing in Lakeville, where some of the articles he was writing for the Star Tribune helped in their discovery.
