Resentment of Target’s $150,000 contribution to group supporting Tom Emmer grows. Emmer’s views on immigration attracted the Boycott Arizona group in supporting LGBT concerns and in boycotting Target stores. Emmer’s stance on a number of social issues attracts resistance from many quarters. Note:while some of the protesters say the Target donation went directly to Tom Emmer, it did not. It went to MN Forward who then bought TV ads supporting Tom Emmer.
