Mark Dayton is the only candidate for Governor among the Democrats who has responded with advocating real solutions to problems so many people are experiencing.
You can't even get a straight answer on anything out of Kelliher or Entenza.
If... you try to talk to Matt Entenza about problems of racism here in Minnesota he starts talking about how he helped Indians in Wisconsin years ago.
If you ask Kelliher what she is going to do to enforce affirmative action on public works projects she starts talking about how some of her best friends are black.
Ask Mark Dayton what he intends to do about affirmative action and he tells you, "I'll enforce it."
I figure if a candidate is willing to stand up in opposition to institutionalized racism in a state like Minnesota where institutionalized racism has been allowed to run rampant for political expediency by politicians seeking suburban votes, that such a politician will be open to any other ideas when he/she can be convinced something is good for the majority of the people.
All we are getting from Kelliher and Entenza is never-ending high-priced fancy campaign brochures delivered to our mail-boxes that are filled with platitudes saying absolutely nothing.
I will vote for a minor party candidate instead of Kelliher or Entenza if this is my only choice.
It is very sad if Insight News, according to some accounts, based its endorsement on which candidate (Entenza) is spending the most advertising dollars with them... I expected much more integrity from Insight News.
