50 new cops campaign Independence/Republicans?

The Independence Parties 5th district along with those Alan Fine loving Republicans have called on Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak to honor his commitment to add 50 new cops. What is more interesting then the Independence Party demonstrating a specific stance on an issue is the willingness for the 5th district Republicans to work with the Independence Party. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come as I am hopeful that Republicans want to see Keith Ellison defeated at some point, and will no longer resort to running a candidate for the sake of running a candidate. I have no problem if they put someone like David Strom up even if they know his fate, but half ass Republicans like Alan Fine are a waste of ballot ink. If Republicans are willing to half ass it they might as well let the Independence Party candidate gain their support, that way somebody will find reason to care about the background and competence of the DFL's main opposition in the 5th district
