Every Monday leading up to election day, we're zeroing in on what the candidates for governor are saying on the campaign trail and what they're not saying. This week, we look at part of Independence Party candidate Tom Horner's plan to solve the state's projected budget deficit. Horner says the budget can't be balanced through cuts alone, and the state needs to increase revenue. He says he would lower the rate on the sales tax by one percent, and then expand it.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Minnesota Public Radio News politics reporter Tom Scheck about what Horner's not saying about his plan.
