Rob Jacobs, DFL candidate running against Dan Severson (R) in District 14A, is running an aggressive campaign to unseat Severson. With a St. Cloud Times endorsement in hand, he was out in force yesterday to get out the vote.

In electing DFLer Jacobs, voters certainly will get a less-polished, more progressive legislator. Yet they also are more likely to have a voice in St. Paul who will listen to all sides and then act in a way that best serves most District 14A constituents.

Jacobs has a tall task unseating a Republican in a heavily conservative district but his moderate to conservative views on social issues coupled with the exposure of Severson as a far right ideologue and an increasingly anti-Republican climate could help him across the finish line into the legislature. An even better sign Jacobs is running an effective campaign is when you are being targeted by the local Republican echo chamber. You have to wonder what sort of perceived trouble Severson is in?

    Calling Mr. Jacobs moderate to conservative is disgraceful. He's the most liberal candidate at the debates I've covered, far outdistancing Larry Haws & Joanne Dorsher.

    BTW, what type of fine will be levied against Mr. Jacobs for campaign finance reporting violations?

    PS- I don't think Dan's in trouble. I think he'll score a solid victory.

    Jacobs is pro-life, supports Minnesotans rights to bear arms, and has devoted his life to public service. Is that what we are calling liberal candidates now days? P.S. Gary, why the posting at 3:21 A.M. - that sounds liberal.
