Democrat Paul Thissen's campaign for governor released a light hearted web video today to showcase that he can close the deal. In it, Thissen strikes out "unemployment" "unfair taxes" and "class sizes." Thissen is vying for the DFL endorsement for governor with a handful of other candidates.
Expect to see more endorsements, videos and other campaign announcements as Saturday's endorsement gets closer. Every campaign wants to build the appearance of momentum.
Thissen has a very good chance of doing it, too, if Rybak and Kelliher deadlock.
