In the latest sign that the 2010 race for Minnesota governor -- already big into Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media flavors -- is tech savvy: Margaret Anderson Kelliher's campaign has an iPhone app.
The free application for the iPhone includes the DFL gubernatorial candidate's bio, a few upcoming events, a Twitter feed and, of course, a link to all folks to contribute.
It's not the fanciest app ever but it appears to be the very first for a Minnesota campaign. (According to TechRepublican California U.S. Senate candidate Chuck DeVore had the first U.S. Senate campaign app.)
A search for "Margaret" or "governor" finds it in the iPhone App store (but not, it seems, a search for "Kelliher.")

Many election observers believe that recent federal court cases partially striking down campaign finance laws have led to significant sums spent without disclosure, including millions last year in Minnesota alone.
