Horner interview starts 30 sec. into the clip.

A Message from the Horner Campaign

Minnesota State Fair in full swing

Lots of people have been stopping by the booth on Nelson St. across from the DNR building to learn about Tom Horner’s plans for creating jobs, spurring economic development, improving health, and enhancing community vitality. Make sure to stop by and sign up to be a part of the campaign. Others just want a photo in between cheese curds. Tom is doing lots of interviews and plans more positive news about his campaign to bring common-sense leadership to the governor’s office as the State Fair progresses.

The week ahead

Tom will visit with voters at the fair. Watch for him Monday on KSTP-TV and FOX-9 KMSP. Tom will also be on WCCO radio with Chad Hartman on Monday just after 1:00 p.m. Then on Friday make sure to tune in for Minnesota Public Radio’s State Fair debate at 11:00 a.m.

Live with Esme Murphy Sunday morning

Tom discussed his proposal to balance the budget with Esme Murphy on WCCO-TV Sunday morning. Tom noted the endorsement of his tax reform plan by thinkers across the political spectrum, while emphasizing its provisions to protect lower-income Minnesotans from tax increases.

“Debate Central” collects all of the debates

TheUptake.org is archiving all the debates in the governor’s race. We’ve rounded many of the recent forums up in one handy post in our ‘On the Trail’ blog.

HornerTV: Independent buffaloes video

The latest video at HornerTV takes a break from the serious policy forums of late to humorously introduce Minnesotans to the Independence Party mascot that will be making the rounds on the campaign trail this fall. Bob and Betty are on the loose and invite everyone to join Tom at the State Fair.

One year ago today, I reported that bombs struck Baghdad and remote communities in northern Iraq as the visiting Iranian foreign minister warned that Iraq’s instability affected the entire region.

On the Campaign Trail: Day 47

Two years ago today, on the 47th day of my 2008 campaign against U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District, in line with my campaign focus on national security issues, I issued my statement opposing the war in Iraq.

ParaBn-patrol.jpg On Patrol - Parachute Batallion picture by Rifleman-AlIn the statement, I called the invasion of Iraq “a mistake,” which — more than just exacting a huge cost in American blood, treasure, and loss of international stature — created a complex set of new security challenges for the United States.

“Before the invasion,” I wrote, “we had in place a very successful containment policy against Iraqi aggression — preserving a delicate balance of power between Iran and Iraq in one of the world’s most volatile regions, the Middle East.”

I continued, “The removal of Saddam Hussein empowered Iran, with its nuclear ambitions, and placed Iraq under the control of Islamist Shiite leaders closely aligned with Iran — thereby creating an infinitely more serious threat to U.S. national security in the region than existed before the invasion.”

Finally, I noted that I was the only candidate in the 6th District congressional race with military experience, trained as an airborne soldier in counterinsurgency and anti-terrorist operations (photo, right) and with professional credentials as a military consultant on nuclear counterproliferation, threat assessment, deterrence, and psychological operations.
