Dean Barkley’s frank assessment at Horner gathering

Former IP Senator Dean Barkley holds “a flicker of hope” for the Horner campaign, “but frankly, he probably came up short on money three weeks ago.”  Mr. Horner has long contended he would need over 2 million dollars to win this race, and it’s starting to look like the lack of funds will be highlighted as a driver behind the campaign’s outcome.

    Dayton has spent $4.2 million, nearly twice as much as Tom Emmer ($2.7 million) and four times as much as Tom Horner (1.2 million).

    Alliance for a Better Minnesota (pro Dayton) reported raising $5.4 million this year and spending $4.8 million.

    On the flip side, two major pro-business interest groups, MN Forward and Minnesota’s Future, have collected $4.1 million and supporting Emmer.
