Minnesota Man Wins A Portion Of Massive Powerball Jackpot
The Powerball had three winners, and one of them happens to be from Anoka County in Minnesota.
Startribune.com is reporting that Paul White of Ham Lake has stepped forward to claim nearly $150 million in the Powerball jackpot.
He was scheduled to be announced at a 2 p.m. press conference, but his step-daughter confirmed he was the lucky guy in a phone interview.
His winning ticket has been confirmed by lottery officials. His family has stated that this all a whirlwind and that he will be thinking of family first.
The other two-thirds of the $448 million pot will go to two people who bought winning tickets in New Jersey.
