There are some other blogs noting that Shafer is hinting, that there are rumblings, but this is the first news article we've found. We've included a link to the Facebook page with the full article posted:

Trying to draw on the good omens of other candidates who have campaigned at Alvin Worley’s Outback and won — including Gov. Sonny Perdue — Republican state Sen. David Shafer, R-Duluth, a candidate for lieutenant governor, held his first official campaign event Thursday at the rustic meeting venue.
