By Craig Stellmacher
From the MN Church Center on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis, I conducted a number of exit interviews. I heard from supporters of almost every candidate, but I probably heard the name Dayton more often than all others. These were serious voters, almost to a person, they said that it was an obligation to come in and vote. “You can’t bitch–if you don’t vote”–said one lady. The issues, were largely economic, but I also ran into an Emmer supporter that said he was voting for “moral” reasons, and he was voting against gay marriage and abortion by voting for Emmer.
