Mark Ritchie can easily overcome a 1 vote lead. That's nothing.

too bad she didn't learn that her food stamp comments were disgraceful.

Too bad people do not closely examine their candidates or Fransen would have lost.

I hope Mary wins. I think the left tries to make an example out of anyone who dares to point out that dependence on government services is a real problem in our country. And it is up to our government representatives to ensure precious financial resources are only allocated to those who need, not those who want. Thanks for saying it, Mary.

People using food stamps ARE the ones in need. Those who want government resources, and receive them, include the MOA, all MN sports teams, farmers (even when they are flush), real estate developers, Cargill, Alliant Tech Systems, BAE, truckers, shippers, airlines, and nearly every corporate behemoth with a lobbying department. Food stamps are only good for food, for crying out loud!

That guy obama won because of voter fraud! We TeaPublicans WERE leading in the polls before people voted….and then look what happened: Obama’s victory was more decisive than Bush’s in 2004! Cook Political is reporting that obama’s national lead over Romney continues to expand as votes keep on coming in. The report says it’s now obama 50.9%, Romney 47.4%. NO way can that be true! MSNBC said that’s a bigger (and more decisive) margin than Bush’s victory over John Kerry in 2004! Bush 50.7%, Kerry 48.2%. Voter Fraud! We TeaPublicans spent billions to get that guy defeated! We had our Fox News, every AM radio station, every Chamber of Commerce and every Church in America blasting him 24 hrs a day…and you are telling me we still lost? Impossible! Well, either you’re closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of obama as president! Ya got trouble, my friends, right here, I say, trouble right here in America!

@norselandc Wrong - Wrong - Wrong. Welfare recipents are issued a debit card which has shown over time to being constantly misused in places like casino's and states other than minnesota which is theft from the tax payer

" Welfare recipents are issued a debit card which has shown over time to being constantly misused in places like casino's " ..... welfare recipients and food stamp recipients are not one in the same. Not all food stamp recipients receive welfare payments. But both do have EBT cards. Food stamp EBT cards can only be used for food.
