State Republican party officials have designed special tee shirts for their trackers to wear when following and filming DFL gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton.
The clothing, unveiled today at the State Fair, comes in response to Dayton’s recent complaint that GOP trackers were trying to intimidate him and his supporters. He also suggested partisan trackers wear some kind of identification.
The Republican shirts include identification along with critical messages aimed at Dayton.
A spokeswoman for Dayton declined to comment specifically on the shirts, but she suggested the GOP spend more time trying to explain candidate Tom Emmer’s plan for reducing the deficit.
