This morning, Democratic-Farm-Labor challenger Jim Meffert, Republican incumbent Erik Paulsen and Independent John Oleson debated each other at Minnesota Public Radio’s studios in St. Paul. Those three are running to represent Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District. All greed that jobs were the critical issue, but Paulsen favored tax cuts. Meffert and Oleson disagreed, saying that revenue had to be part of the equation. Meffert was clear on health care accomplishments. Paulsen wants to repeal and start over.

As is often the case, the parties were reading from different fact books.
