Today was "Mayors' Day" in the Twin Cities metro area. America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani came to MN to support his buddy, Norm Coleman. At a packed session held at the Sofitel Hotel in Edina, Rudy was his usual upbeat, positive, "we can do it" self. He knows what is at stake in this election.
Norm hammered home his message: energy independence, security, fiscal responsibility. Again, his "can-do" attitude - why? We're Americans, we do.
Minnesota's Mayors get it: the Coleman for Senate campaign today proudly announced the formation of the Mayors for Coleman Coalition, a bipartisan group of nearly 50 mayors from across Minnesota who have officially endorsed Senator Coleman�s campaign.
The list is here and includes mayors from both parties. They are responsible enough to understand that sending a comedian who makes his living by trashing women and others is not what is needed to solve America's issues today. On the job training is no good for a president nor is it any good for a US Senator. We need people who have DONE something. Norm re-energized St. Paul as a mayor; he has the integrity needed in the US Senate. Send him back to DC.
