Bill Clinton once said Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line. At the DFL Unity Press Conference, Democrats fell in line and had no love lost for Republican Gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer. “Today we unite as DFLers we unite to beat Tom Emmer” said Margaret Anderson Kelliher
Unity is not something that always comes easily or naturally for Democrats. “The danger is Tom Emmer” said MN DFL Party Chair Brian Melendez
“The DFL doesn’t consider the minimum wage to be what Emmer calls socialism or the 35W bridge repair fund to be feel good legislation” said Mark Dayton
The Unity Press Conference came hours after the late-night primary race between DFL candidates Margaret Anderson Kelliher, Mark Dayton, and Matt Entenza. The margin between Kelliher and Dayton at times veered into recount territory.
