The 25 minute DFL press conference revolved around jobs and working families and what it would take to get the state back on track. Time and time again the phrase "everything is on the table" was uttered by the leadership.
The 11 minute Republican press conference revolved around how government is bad and the DFL is bad yet offered few solutions apart from gutting the health and human services budget. Is it any wonder why their caucus has diminished so dramatically over the past few years? When you offer no solution other than gutting government people start to look for some middle ground.
