I was outside the other day outside a coffee shop drinking some coffee and it was raining. A guy walked out of the coffee shop with his coffee and I yelled at him, “Hey guy, I’m running for Governor. What do I gotta do to get your vote.” The guy stopped and yelled he’d vote for me in the primary if I picked him as my running mate.
Well I didn’t know this guy. I thought about following him home to see what he’d be like in real life, but decided to stay at the coffee shop and think about things instead. I’ve got to pick a running mate and I have to do it fast.
The only person who has made a decision is Tom Emmer and I don’t think the guy he picked is a good fit because I read somewhere that he wanted to do away with the Lt Governor office anyway. I thought he was going to pick Mark Seifert, because that would have been a real pair, but he didn’t.
Mark Dayton, Matt Entezna, Margeret Kelliher and me are all running in the primary and none of us have picked yet! Yikes!
I started looking back in Minnesota politics and wanted to pick someone who isn’t a joke and who will take me seriously. The DFL won’t take me seriously, so I need to find someone who they can take seriously.
I think one idea is Ray McCloney. I think a lot of people remember him and saw him on TV.
I also think maybe this Chick Nicholas guy sounds smart. He wants to do tourism, which I want to do. Maybe him then?
I don’t know. Maybe you guys have some ideas.
