As a student of journalism, I am appalled by the characterization of the endorsement in this article. Using the term "handful" inappropriately editorializes. The word is, as it is used currently, loaded with the implication of insignificance.
Note that other publications have simply named the number (13) of legislators who endorsed the IP candidate. Whether that number is insignificant or not is up to readers to decide, not reporters.

Horner is not an Independant. He is a Republi-thug, always has been a Republi-thug, and always will be a Republi-thug.

A vote for this phoney is a vote against good government in Minnesota.

Horner's proposed tax on clothing alone, is more than enough to sink him. He has no chance.

The reason the megamall gets so much business from out of state is because we have no tax on clothing. If you change that, the megamall's business will suffer immeasurably.

"Repbli-thug"? That's clever. Did you make that up yourself?

This story could have been written with those former legislators listed supporting Mark Dayton. They are closer to being DFLers than they are Republicans anyway.
