Following Friday’s Minnesota Gubernatorial debate, Independence Party candidate Tom Horner said he was puzzled by why Republican Party candidate Tom Emmer won’t answer questions about what he would do as Governor on abortion issues. Tom Horner: “You know I don’t understand why Representative Emmer won’t answer some of these questions. I mean I think it is fairly well known where his position is on abortion. And I respect his position, his right to take that position. I think it’s misplaced in that where I believe we ought to put our resources and where I think he could have the conversation and where both Dayton and Emmer ought to join me in leading is how do we reduce the need for abortion.
