Looks like Emmer must be pulling ahead in this race. The DFL and the local news media (but I repeat myself) pull some bull crap to slime the Republican candidate. With not enough time before the election for the public to fully realize it is a coordinated attack of the news media and the Democrat Party, they hope to fool the good people of Minnesota. Don't be fooled people. Dayton would be a disaster for this state.

Of course Dayton would be a disaster, or should we say, feeding the ongoing disaster?
So Emmer is sued? Big deal. In our law suit happy society you are not cool if you haven't sued or been sued. Yeah sick but true.

I have heard rumors that Hackbarth has some sort of deal with the democrat party on this one. If it's true, I wouldn't be surprised, because the democrats will do anything to win. When I say anything, I mean anything.

Emmer, taste your own bullying tactics. Sue your neighbor, business partner, building contractors, everyone in sight. Now you are vulnerable and you are going down. When the kicking starts, protect your head.

Actually, after the disaster that exists now in the world of T-Paw, Dayton would actually be quite an upgrade. Also, the latest polls are showing Dayton actually pulling ahead and Horner siphons moderate Republican votes that Emmer needs to pull off a win.

Hoppin where is your research on Dayton and his past? I guess you democrats do not want the public to know about his womanizing drug using alcohol induce funk he is in. You never mention that he never has made a dime in the private sector. No he gets his money from daddy. No you chose headlines where some tLawyer sueing. Don't you think the timing is kinda opportunistic for you dems? 3 weeks before an election but never fear you ace reporter are on the job!
your talking about republican president george walker bush your talking about, bush was a drug and alcohol user and had no money and was a womanizer.

Actually I do not doubt that. Try to seperate away the warm fuzzies you have of Dayton's department store and Dayton's political career . He had nothing to do with the store, and surely you can't like him for his past political history. Obviously you don't recall (or care) what a crappy and ineffective senator Dayton was. Voted one of the 5 worst senators.

Well if Pawlenty was so successful as Governor why then does Emmer's campaign slogan in his TV ads finish by saying and I quote;

"It' time for a new direction."

Aren't they both Republicans? Sounds to me like he did not respect Pawlenty's work as Governor.

I would think it should be Dayton and not Emmers saying that in a TV ad.

Liberals I talk to are switching to support Horney.

No conservatives I talk to are voting for anyone but Emmer.

Dayton bought his place on the ballot with cash from out east and his Target Corporation donated to Emmer..

Just love it when Liberals are part owners in a company and the company supports the conservative candidate. Dayton is a goofy looser.

That is part of the Democrat way. Bus people in (your tag says you are from Milwaukee) to vote. I don't think you are supposed to make it public though.
