Republican Mike McFadden was not kidding around Tuesday night with an overwhelming primary election victory in his GOP bid for U.S. Senate. He rolled over opponent Jim Abeler of Anoka County with 71 percent of the votes. Abeler was a distant second with 15 percent of the votes.

The victory squarely pits McFadden against DFL incumbent Al Franken in the November general election.

In other races, Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson captured the GOP slot for governor with 30 percent of the votes. Kurt Zellers, 24 percent, Marty Seifert, 21 percent, and Scott Honour, also with nearly 21 percent of the votes, will all now bow out of the race against incumbent DFL Gov. Mark Dayton.

Rebecca Otto also flexed her muscles in her race to keep her state auditor position. She finished with 81 percent of the DFL votes in that race. Challenger Matt Entenza finished with 19 percent.

    I have serious reservations about persons running for public office under the label of being “conservative.” Presently there are persons who have money put away in off shore banks which allows them to not pay any taxes on that money. Conservative folks seem to be favoring the top 1% of citizens who are making millions of dollars. They continually are looking for additional tax breaks to allow them more money in their pockets. There needs to be a significant change in our tax laws to deal with the previous statement. Conservatives want to make changes to Social Security, Medicare and from information presently available, this information is telling us these changes will not be a benefit to the Middle and poor classes of citizens. Conservatives have cost our Nation billions of dollars. The Iraq war was a large mistake, the Gov. shutdown cost our Nation millions of dollars. At the National level, the House of Representatives under the control of the Conservatives have chosen to do “nothing” for citizens they are suppose to be serving!! They have rejected many proposals from President Obama that would have assisted our economy, deficit spending, etc. The word “Compromise” is not in their vocabulary!!! With the “mid-term” elections just around the corner, personally, the Conservatives have not earned the right to have control of Congress!! Please, exercise your right as a citizen of this Nation, to vote on November 4th, 2014.

      Progressive1623—you commented in part– Conservatives want to make changes to Social Security, Medicare and from information presently available, this information is telling us these changes will not be a benefit to the Middle and poor classes of citizens.—-I would suggest you look at other information. It’s out there just look.——“We must reform our complicated, uncertain, job-killing tax code, by getting rid of unjustified loopholes,” Rubio said. “But our goal should be to generate new revenue by creating new taxpayers, not new taxes.”—-Sounds like you need to read more.
