Less-glamorous neighborhood in Minneapolis? The farther they get away from the capitol the better chance they have of actually making contact with the real people of Minnestoa.

"Less-glamorous neighborhood in Minneapolis"? Are they moving to the Phillips neighborhood, or maybe the Near North side?

"Party chairman Keith Downey says the shift was done both to save money and to get outside of the state's political beltway." ---- This is real funny. They spent millions (nearly bankrupting the party) to get into the political beltway and now they want out. If you ask me it is poor fiscal planning and management that forced them out of the "political beltway" but give them credit to come up with the only face-saving excuse that will appeal to the hard right-wing base by saying such. Kiss the moderate in the party goodbye because they won't be so easily manipulated. They know the truth.

I hope the landlord got their rent money well in advance.

They won't find too many like-minded people in Seward. So, a dose of reality, perhaps. It would be even better if they relocated to the Phillips neighborhood.

If they really wanted to save money they could move to Texas. Wouldn't that be nice? Then they could get down and dirty with the "real" people-as opposed to those who elect them.

Maybe they should move in with Tony Sutton.

They are now in the "the rent is too damn high" coalition on their way to extinction.
