NRCC Tries A Desperately Weak Attack On Angie Craig
by Dave Mindeman

The 2nd District Congressional race is going to be a tight one. Jason Lewis has the name recognition (although whether that's good or bad remains to be seen), while Angie Craig is relatively unknown but with a good resume.

Recently, the NRCC tried to attack Craig in an unusual way. Here is the quote:

"It is an astonishing display of hypocrisy for Angie Craig to run a campaign ad on her company's record on veterans, when that same company was forced to pay a multi-million dollar settlement for overcharging our nation's veterans for . . .

I Bristle When I Hear Anyone Say That Hillary Is Dishonest
by Dave Mindeman

I have been disappointed by politicians in the past...many times. If a Democrat screws up and you have supported them...sometimes you just have to buckle up and weather the storm. You acknowledge the problem and go with what you have.

In the case of Hillary Clinton, it has been particularly strange to me that so many Democrats say they don't trust her. They buy into this narrative that she "lies" all the time.

The Cynical Political Transit Ploy Of Kurt Daudt
by Dave Mindeman

The Met Council has a proposal to try and get the state portion of SWLRT funding by adding to the metro share of the package. It is not a sure thing because it requires commitments from three different groups involved with area transportation.

Americans For Prosperity Sent Me Disappointing Information
by Dave Mindeman

I have a bone to pick with Americans For Prosperity regarding this mailing I got....

First of all, I am very disappointed about this tax hike. It says that our Senator gave "us" a tax hike. As I have been told, that tax hike only applied to the top 2% of Minnesotans.

I did not get a tax hike. I am disappointed because this must mean that I am not in the top 2% of Minnesota citizens. It is unfair. Somebody tax me.

Second, I . . .

The UTV
by Dave Mindeman

Trump's new campaign manager, Kelly Anne Conway said this in a recent interview...

"The hidden Trump vote in this country is a very significant proposition," she added.Asked if she could provide an estimate of the number of those voters, Conway said the campaign had a ballpark figure but was choosing to keep it private."I can't discuss it," she said. "It's a project we're doing internally. I call it the undercover Trump voter, but it's real."

We have been missing something. The Undercover Trump Voter (UTV) is apparently out there and the Trump campaign is . . .
