DFL Scavengers Seek Emmer’s Plans

At the Minnesota State Fair on Thursday morning, three athletic young women took off on a scavenger hunt from the DFL (Democratic Farm Labor Party) booth with just 30 minutes to search the fairgrounds high and low for Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer’s plans for Minnesota.. DFL candidate Mark Dayton has consistently criticized Emmer for failing to release his economic plan for how the state will deal with its nearly $6 billion deficit.

Twenty eight minutes later the women ducked under the finish line to claim their prize – DFL bling. Those with less energy could try the bean bag toss to pick Emmer’s excuses for missing so many legislative sessions.
