Sparce Rally Before Last MN Gubernatorial Debate

Supporters accross the street from Fitzgerald Theater, site of final MN Gubernatorial debate for 2010

A sparse crowd of supporters rallied for a sparse crowd of attendees at the 26th and final debate of the three major candidates for Minnesota’s Governor’s chair. Sponsored by Minnesota Public Radio, it was staged at St.Paul’s Fitzgerald Theater.

The Tom Emmer crowd arrived early and set up on the corner of exchange and Cedar. Lots of lawn space for signs, but not much traffic. As the Mark Dayton supporters dribbled in the focus of the rally moved west to Exchange and Wabasha, with much more traffic. Soon they spread out to all four corners of the intersection.
There was the usual sign waving and some chanting, but by and large a much quieter event than previous rallies. No epithets exchanged, no blood spilled. The Emmer sound truck bell and horn provided most of the noise,

The Tom Horner Independence Party Buffalo made a solitary entrance and was soon joined by his (or her) candidate.
