GOP candidates target government spending, welfare reform and school choice in debate

Six of the Republican candidates for governor participated in a GOP forum this morning in Mendota Heights. The Twin Cities Republican Women’s group held the forum today that featured Leslie Davis, Tom Emmer, David Hann, Bill Haas, Phil Herwig and Marty Seifert.

It’s one of the first GOP forums held since Pat Anderson announced she was quitting the race for governor and was running for State Auditor.

The candidates discussed their ideas on cutting government, fixing the K12 school system and improving the state’s economy.

You can listen to the full debate here (I missed the first thirty seconds of Bill Haas’ introduction but the rest of the debate is there):

  • What a wonderful event. 100 people at a great breakfast and gubernatorial forum at the Mendakota Country Club. Thank you Metro Republican Women.

    Leslie Davis

  • Your headline says a debate took place about, “government spending, welfare reform and school choice”. I spoke extensively about my Money Plan and Transportation yet that wasn’t mentioned in the headline. My ideas are new, innovative and state of the art. They deserve headline attention.

    Yours truly,

    Leslie Davis for Governor
