Republican gubernatorial candidate Marty Seifert was among the first to send an email congratulations to DFL gubernatorial endorsee Margaret Anderson Kelliher. His congrats were not whole hearted.
From Seifert:
"Congratulations to my colleague Margaret Anderson-Kelliher, on receiving the DFL endorsement for governor.  While the Republican Party will be united behind one candidate in less than a week, the DFL will have a bruising primary battle for months.  One thing is certain:  each of the DFL candidates for governor will promise higher taxes, more spending, and greater government intrusion in our lives.  I will continue to fight for Minnesotans to reduce taxes, cut spending, and rein in government at all levels."
The Republicans will hold their endorsing convention next weekend. Seifert is locked in a tight battle with state Rep. Tom Emmer.
