The Dems have turned up the “heat” on the idea that Tom Horner was a Republican this past week. My theory is that the DFL has internal polling showing that Horner is taking more – a lot more – Democrat votes than Republicans.
And yesterday, it was the endorsement by thirteen “Republican” former legislators.
Now, I thought it was fair to guess that these “Republicans” weren’t necessarily the post-Pawlenty, or even post-1980, type – the type that actually try to be an alternative to the DFL, the type that scare the DFL.
But I had no idea how far out of the past the Horner campaign had to dig to find these “Republicans”. Here’s the list, with their respective ages:
Not only were most of these people “Republicans” when “Minnesota Republican” meant “Democxrat with a nice suit”, some of them even date back to when Democrats actually put America first.
Up next – Whigs, Grangers and Know-Nothings for Horner!
