Horner concedes but vows to stay active in promoting ‘centrist vision’

Minutes after conceding that his gubernatorial race had fallen short, Independence Party candidate Tom Horner vowed to continue a campaign for a more-centrist Minnesota political vision.

He said he’s not taking anything “off the table” for another run at a political office, and seemed eager to work closely with the IP to work particularly on the issue of Ranked Choice Voting.

The efforts to define votes for him as “wasted” clearly affected his total tally, which has stayed around 12 percent all evening.

Stiil, he said, “We are committed to build on this great campaign.”

Reprising the central theme of his upstart effort, Horner told several hundred supporters at a  Minnetonka hotel that his campaign proved “There is a center to Minnesota politics.”
