Education, taxes, health care and the DFL's two-decade absence from the governor's office were among the topics covered during a gubernatorial debate last night in Hopkins.
Eleven DFL candidates (Tom Bakk, Mark Dayton, Matt Entenza, Susan Gaertner, Steve Kelley, Margaret Anderson Kelliher, John Marty, Tom Rukavina, R.T. Rybak, Ole Savior and Paul Thissen) participated in the two-hour event. Organizers used an unusual format where no more than three candidates were on stage at any one time.
