Progressives Have Mixed Emotions Over Dayton Win

By Bill Sorem
It may have been the heat, it may have been because the election ran so late into the night, but a sampling of Minnesota progressives we talked to this morning were reserved in their comments on the result of the DFL Governor Primary.

These members of MoveOn.org were gathered for “The Other 98% Rallies (the 98% not represented by Congressional cash lobbies). At the time of the interviews, Mark Dayton was ahead, but Margaret Anderson Kelliher had not yet conceded.

No matter who they supported, the responses were almost stereotypical Minnesotan. No great elation, no great disappointment. This differed greatly from the campaign heat generated just a few days before.
