    So much for the huge donation the Target stores made to the campaign of anti-gay bigot Tom Emmer.

    Via Washington Post:
    Republican Tom Emmer has conceded the Minnesota governor's race to former Sen. Mark Dayton (D), bringing a close to the last undecided governor's race of 2010 and finalizing the playing field for the 2011 nationwide redistricting. "Minnesotans have made their choice, by however thin a margin, and we respect that choice," Emmer said.

    Emmer said he will not press forward with a legal challenge following a recount that left him behind by nearly 9,000 votes. Dayton's win means Republicans will control 29 of the 50 governorships, while Democrats control 20. One seat will be held by an independent, former GOP Sen. Lincoln Chafee in Rhode Island.

    As a pure homosexual. a true blue gay; the real thing. When I vote I put my country before the gay agenda! This does not make one anti gay, or bigoted, it's about priorities, and I put my county before myself, it's as simple as that.

    Also the gay agenda does not represent all true blue gays either, us pure homosexuals.

    True Blue = the real thing!

    I find this ironic, since the Dayton family has a major interest in Target, does it not?

    Some cheese with that whine?

    Minnesota and the Twin Cities are perpetually at or near the top of best places to live in the US.

    We didn't get there by magic, mock.

    Now...moving on to repairing the damage done by outgoing Republican governor Tim Pawlenty...

    It'll take a while, given the obstinate and short-sighted nature of the the MNGOP.
