Minnesota's in the Middle

All things Minnesota politics

The Democrats response Wayne Sather of Eagan (Democrat as clearly evident by his January 26th letter to the editor Judging Aliton) responds to Hutchinson’s piece in yesterdays Star Tribune with the typical DFL whining that he must be on Pawlenty's campaign.

Peter Hutchinson has been a Delegate to the Independence Party convention for over 4 years now.

Peter Hutchinson is often heard saying he's running for Governor because he thinks we ought to have one.

Peter Hutchinson has successfully raised money from former Democrat donors former Republican Donors and long time Independence Party donors.

Peter Hutchinson is running for Governor of Minnesota, he's running against Becky Lourey, Steve Kelley, Kelly Doran, Mike Hatch, Pam Ellison, Tim Pawlenty, Sue Jeffers, and Jonathan Sharkey as they are also running for governor.

Peter Hutchinson is building a coalition to win from the perspective of the Independence Party as he is actively recruiting well respected candidates for other offices.

Peter Hutchinson's stance on instant Run off Voting (IRV) is well established. He is in favor of it. I would question the DFL stance in light of it being 6 years removed since Ralf Nader "stole" the 2000 election and 2 years since Nader made his intentions to "help Bush win again" clear. I've seen no movement on the issue nationally or locally from the DFL. Even when the abortion lobby killed the Roseville plan to use IRV in city council elections we saw no outcry from Democrats. The fact of the matter is Peter Hutchinson’s chances of winning in 2006 would be a heck of a lot better with IRV.

Peter Hutchinson absolutely has a chance to win, and letter writers like Wayne Sather will only help his campaign as Minnesotans will have a crystal clear of what the two big money parties are all about.
