Tom Emmer’s campaign says he will announce the first of three parts of his budget plan on Labor Day. Emmer’s opponents for Governor of Minnesota, DFLer Mark Dayton and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner have often criticized Emmer for not having a plan to solve Minnesota’s projected budget deficit of $5.8 billion. Emmer, along with fellow Republican and current Governor Tim Pawlenty claim that Minnesota doesn’t have a deficit. Internet willing, The UpTake will carry the announcement live.
Press release from the Emmer campaign:
Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Emmer will announce the first part of his budget plan, Tom Emmer’s Jobs Agenda, Monday, September 6th at Permac Industries in Burnsville.
Emmer has said that job creation will be his highest priority if he is elected the state’s next governor. Therefore, job creation deserves the focus of the first of his three announcements for a state government budget plan.
The second and third announcements will be made over the next two weeks.
