DFL candidate for Governor Mark Dayton says he knows he can’t control third party groups, but today he called upon them to stop personal negative attack ads. He said such a smear ad against him launched by the Minnesota Republican Party yesterday was not a surprise, and it should run its course. He said that an attack ad against Tom Emmer launched by Alliance for Better Minnesota “crossed the line”.
Dayton said the public is tired of the negative ads. He thinks his two opponents Emmer and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner are honorable men.
Dayton said some people will stoop to anything and do anything to win. The only way to put a stop to this is for the public to say no.
