Minnesota candidate for governor Tom Emmer responded to the controversy over Target’s contribution to Minnesota Forward, an independent group running ads in support of Emmer.
“The sad part to me is, I thought we were supposed to be able to exercise our rights of free speech,” said Emmer, a fiery conservative who is his party’s likely nominee for governor. “We’re supposed to celebrate the fact that we have different perspectives. And it doesn’t seem like that’s what this is about. This seems to be more personal and we’ve got to get over that.”
