Dead Heat in Minnesota

Dead Heat in Minnesota
A new MPR News/Humphrey Institute poll in Minnesota shows Mark Dayton (D) and Tom Emmer (R) running neck and neck in the race for governor.

Emmer and Dayton are deadlocked each with 34% support, while Independence Party candidate Tom Horner had 13%.

Traficant Has the Signatures to Run
Less than a year after being released from prison, former Rep. Jim Traficant secured enough petition signatures to run for his old House seat this fall as an independent.

CQ Politics: “The district, which Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan currently represents, includes much of the Mahoning Valley constituency that Traficant represented from 1985 until his expulsion from the House in 2002 on corruption charges. That was three months after a federal court convicted him of 10 counts of bribery, racketeering and tax evasion. He was released from prison in September 2009.”
