Medical costs and insurance are a major issue for all citizens. Seems to me that Marty has already decided which bed he's sleeping in on that subject. The roads took a major beating during your buddy Pawlenty's administration, Marty. Now you are going to play catch up? What will happen to the services provided by corrections and labor services? Will we have to pick these up locally? That's what happened with Pawlenty, cut on the state level and pass it on down. Of course your rich supporters will be better off with their tax breaks, though.

Before 2011, a Democrat hadn't been the MN governor since 1991. In two years, any success in MN is a result of Dayton, but any trouble in the nation since 2009 is still the fault of George Bush? .....DAYTON FOR PRESIDENT!!!!

I would agree with your assessment of Seiferts platform cynic. He may claim to be an independent but he's towing the same old GOP line. I would have advised Marty to keep his day job but it doesn't sound like that was even an option. When you compare MN to neighboring states run by Republicans, we are a WHOLE lot better off.

After reading the update, I'll have to pass on this agenda. Of the 5 main campaign issues, only 1 is really gubernatorial worthy, and that is the infrastructure needs. Once again we will have a GOP guy demanding tax cuts with no way of funding.

Sex offenders? Come on. Lots of sizzle but no steak.

Light rail? Non-issue. And by the way, mass transit should be embraced, not discarded. Try to drive on 694 during rush hour sometime.

Well it will be interesting to learn about his vision for a greater Minnesota. Hopefully it is not the same retread, GOP platform we have all come to love.

Again, I will challenge the claim of "private sector" experience. Raising money for a hospital is not holistic business experience.

With that, good luck. I'd vote for him before Emmer or Dayton. But I really hope a candidate with a business background, and a platform not catering to the religious folk, emerges over time. We cannot keep slipping into this viscious cycle.
