Op-Ed for the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead:
This election season has focused on one central theme: jobs. This is deservedly so, as our state and our nation are currently in the midst of the deepest, longest-lasting recession since the Great Depression. As Minnesotans, we can be thankful that we have not suffered unemployment to the extent that other states have. However, Tuesday’s election presents a clear and distinct choice in how we move forward and grow our way to a more successful Minnesota.
My husband, Keith Schwartzwald, and I recently had the opportunity to host one of the candidates vying to be part of the leadership team that will shape the direction of Minnesota, Republican lieutenant governor candidate Annette Meeks. Tom Emmer and Meeks have spent the past six months campaigning together on a call to improve Minnesota’s business climate to make our state more attractive for job growth and expansion.

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer’s campaign today announced plans for a state-wide swing to bring his message of government living within its means and job creation directly to the voters of Minnesota over the final two days before the election. Emmer will attend nineteen rallies in nineteen cities across Minnesota in the final 25 hours of the campaign, starting by meeting voters in Anoka at 7:00am on Monday, November 1st, and ending with a rally in Delano at 8:00am on Election Day. Emmer will be joined by Governor Pawlenty in Saint Paul, Winona, Rochester, Mankato, Alexandria, Moorhead and Duluth, before boarding the Emmer RV to cross the state.
“Throughout the campaign Tom has been overwhelmed by the support he has received from voters who are concerned about who will lead Minnesota,” said Emmer Campaign manager Cullen Sheehan. “Tom will end the campaign the same we he started – bringing his message and energy to people across the state who understand how important it is to have a leader ready for the challenges we face.”

KSTP-TV, Saint Paul-Minneapolis:
A new KSTP/SurveyUSA poll shows Republican Tom Emmer and DFLer Mark Dayton in a dead heat in the race for governor.
Released Thursday, the poll results show Dayton with a razor-thin, one-point lead of 39 to 38 percent. Independence Party candidate Tom Horner sits at 13 percent.
The poll's margin of error is plus or minus four percent. It includes two percent more Republicans than Democrats, which is consistent with national polling.

In past election cycles, results from the MPR/Humphrey Institute have been wrong and have given voters across the state bad information. The most recent poll released today by MPR and the Humphrey Institute follows this dramatically wrong yet predictable pattern.
To make sure voters have more accurate and statistically reliable information about the Minnesota Governor’s race, the Emmer Campaign today is releasing results from its own internal poll conducted on October 24th and 25th by Public Opinion Strategies. The poll of 500 likely voters shows the race for Governor tied: Dayton 40, Emmer 40, Horner 13. The poll has margin of error ±4.38% and is more in line with recent results from Survey USA and Rasmussen and in stark contrast to the ridiculous polling done by the Star Tribune and MPR.
