This is soooo typical…
A Republican group is driving a truck around the state with negative Governor Dayton images and words on it. They are calling it the Soup Truck. At the same time, Republican political leaders are flying around the state next week visiting airports in eight cities holding press conferences. The thing is that neither the truck nor the airport tours are leading to direct conversation with voters.
At each airport, Republican leaders are holding press conferences, then hopping back on the plane to fly to the next city to hold another press conference. The Soup Truck is driving around handing out packets of soup and a sarcastic and partisan filled anti DFL pamphlet with no budget solutions included.
So what is the DFL doing? While Republicans are touring airports, Democratic leaders are traveling around the state and holding town hall meetings with voters. And they are, get this, driving in cars.
Yeah. While the GOP works on scare tactics, and “high-flying” game playing with media and ardent supporters, the DFL is inviting voters in communities to come out to talk about what they want in their communities, and how more cuts and a lack of investment is impacting their community.
Don’t be fooled by these slick marketing campaigns. Oh, by the way, let’s not forget or ignore that the lineup for soup image on that truck happened because of the impact Republican’s had on the economy causing the Great Depression. Luckily Democrats pulled us out of it.
