While it may be low on the media radar, the battle between the two Independence Party candidates for Governor has gotten nasty.
At a live debate on KFAI today, Rob Hahn accused Tom Horner’s campaign of lying about Hahn’s divorce on an internet post. Hahn then challenged Horner to release his client list from when he worked at PR agency Himle Horner. Hahn then said he would be revealing his list of donors at a 10:30 AM news conference to prove that his campaign is not being funded by the Republican party. Horner countered that it wasn’t Hahn’s campaign that was trying to torpedo him, it was Republicans talking about “creating mischief” by voting for Hahn in the Independence Party primary as a way of getting Horner out of the race. The Republican endorsed candidate for Governor Tom Emmer is expected to easily win his party’s primary.
Hahn had more to say at a morning news conference. We’ll have that video posted soon.
