DFL gubernatorial endorsee Margaret Anderson Kelliher conceded Wednesday morning. Here is her statement:
“I just spoke with Mark Dayton and congratulated him on winning the DFL primary. I offered him my full support. He will make an excellent governor.
“I am so grateful for all of the hard work of our volunteers and supporters over the last twelve months. This was a people-powered, grassroots campaign and we should all be proud of what we achieved together.
“In Minnesota we value every person’s voice and count every person’s vote. And that’s what happened this election.
“Today we will come together as DFLers. We will unite behind Mark Dayton, and beat Tom Emmer in November.”
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
