At a press conference in the State Capitol today Minnesota State Representative Tom Rukavina challenged GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer’s record and promises of jobs creation. Standing in front of several flags he read a long list of Emmer’s no-votes or not voting on job-creation bills, including a 2007 bill requiring that all flags sold in Minnesota be made in the United States. Rukavina went on to read a list of the average number of jobs created, annually, by the last four Minnesota governors.

Rudy Perpich: 34,418 per year
Arne Carlson 45,281 per year
Jesse Ventura 23,560 per year
Tim Pawlenty 185 per year
