Republican, Democrat, and Misdirection

Last night I was the site coordinator for Golden Valley (SD 44) precinct caucuses. Both parties were at Meadowbrook Elementary School. The wife of our state senator, Steve Kelley (D - Hopkins), stopped by our table, which was filled with Republican literature. Kelley is running for governor in Minnesota. I told her that we were supporting her husband for the Democrat endorsement, but not in the general election. I didn't think it odd that she would talk to us, given that Senator Kelley stopped by the Republican booth and shook hands at the 2005 Juneteenth parade.

Sophie Kelley stuck around and kept chatting. Then she thanked us for all the work that we do. Finally I asked, "You know that we're Republicans, right?" She excused herself and went to the other part of the school.

Hi Pete, it's Kris. I have been reading your blog for weeks- and was dying to apply as a "non-diverse" individual. Need to talk to you about BIAS CLEs, look me up and email (we moved to Richmond). it's my year again

Did you know actress Kelly Lynch is from Golden Valley? You should move to the "Simon district."

were you supporting him in the democratic endorsement because he is a radical nut and therefore would likely lose against the Republican or because he was the most conservative of the dems?

Radical nut who would probably loose the state wide election since he has no following outside of the twin cities.
