Herwig stresses constitutional principles

Republican Phil Herwig fired up the crowd this morning by telling GOP delegates that he’s best equipped to return the state back to core constitutional principles. Herwig also criticized Republican legislators Tom Emmer and Marty Seifert.

The people in the Legislature running for governor have such a shallow understanding of the problems in this state.”

Herwig also said he’s not just for welfare reform like the other candidates. “I’m for dismantling the welfare state,” Herwig said.

Here’s his speech:

    Tom, did you mean legislators “Emmer and Seifert”?

    Amazing what little comment Phil Herwig’s speech received during your coverage.

    Too many inconvenient truths?
