    And Former Senator Clark is exactly who I had in mind when I typed that. Clark winning the primary would be a catastrophe. She is weak on a level that non-locals don't seem to understand.

    •  Oh, hey, I wanted to ask you a question. (0+ / 0-)

      I noticed about a month ago that Clark recieved the endorsement of the local United Steal Workers District 11 Union. Do you know what happened?

      •  that was last fall (0+ / 0-)

        It was right about the time I left the Nolan campaign myself. It didn't help her with the caucus or the party endorsement. The USW got behind Clark for the same reason I left the Nolan campaign.

        Since this endorsement 8 months ago, really everything has come crashing down on Clark. And the USW is sitting on their hands right now. They can't officially abandon Clark, but thy are offing forth zero effort to help her with the primary. The focus is on November for sure. And with the entire DFL infrastructure behind Nolan, the USW is sort of laying idle until the general.

          What happened with Nolan? I remember something about mining. Did that have something to do with it?

            That has (mostly) blown over now. And yea, there is a BIG issue right now involving mineral rights. It is far too complex to type on a Droid, but it has really divided people along strange lines locally. Do a Google news search for Minnesota Mineral Leases if you want to educate yourself.
