Sue Jeffers (born October 3, 1956) was a candidate for Ramsey County Commissioner, a small business owner, and former candidate for Governor of Minnesota. Jeffers challenged incumbent Tim Pawlenty for the Republican Party nomination in the 2006 Minnesota gubernatorial election, after declining endorsement from the Libertarian Party of Minnesota. The Republican Party of Minnesota declined to consider her endorsement at the 2006 State Convention, citing her previous affiliations with the Libertarian Party of Minnesota.
