MinnPost’s mobile headquarters delivered signs and buttons in St. Paul Saturday, and politics was in the air.

John Hakes, a CPA from Shoreview, showed up at the MinnPostmobile’s West 7th Street parking spot wearing his Horner for Governor shirt.

Among others who took signs and buttons were Pam Neary of Afton, a former DFL state legislator who managed Independence Party candidate Peter Hutchinson’s campaign for governor four years ago; and Greg Filice, former member of the St. Paul school board.

Earlier, the mobile HQ made some house calls, including at the home of St. Paul photographer/teacher Linda Brooks, right.

    I don’t know what’s more weird: Tom Emmer holding a MinnPost sign or Tom Emmer wearing a Horner shirt.

    What is the message here? People listen to the same Democrat/DFL talking points they read?
