In pursuit of rural vote, gov hopefuls go country
Seven of the top DFL candidates for governor live in the metro area, but it's safe to say that they're emphasizing their ties - however tenuous - to rural Minnesota to attract more support.

We can always thank the rural vote for Rudy Perpich.

Yeah, and you brilliant urbanites gave yourselves Sharon Sayles Belton for something like 3 terms, not to mention Jackie Cherryhomes. Way to go, geniuses.

Althouh I liked Sharon Sayles Belton and I'm from St Paul, Minnesota, I'm inclined to agree with your post. It is not funny or cute to suggest rural Minnesotans can not send a good Governor to the State Capitol.
My only hope is that rural Minnesotans stop characterizing the Twin Cities as crime infested, welfarish communities whose goal is acquire tax dollars to support lazy individuals. The Twin Cities is home to several important businesses, like 3M, Toro, SuperValu, General Mills, Lawson Software, Wells Fargo, Medtronic, etc. We have several homes and nice families that work hard everyday. They enjoy the Vikings, the Twins, park trails, the Wild, the Mall of America, skiing, cabins, etc. just like you rural folks do. If we all work together, we can revitalize this state, and make it the Minnesota Miracle that it once was.

Well, you actually liked Sayles Belton, so I'll make allowances for your lack of comprehension, but I don't recall anybody characterizing the Twin Cities as you described. Perhaps it was the voices in your head?
