Republican Rep. Steve Drazkowski has picked Halloween to announce his support for GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer. The Mazeppa lawmaker is holding a meet and greet event tomorrow at noon at the National Guard Armory, 1715 Marion Road S.E. in Rochester.
Rep. Emmer, an attorney from Delano, Minn., is considered to be one of the more conservative candidates in the race. In a news release, Drazkowski explains why he is backing Emmer.
"Representative Emmer stands solid for the working people of our state — advocating for the individual liberties and common sense policies rewarding work and personal responsibility, rather than discouraging it."
Drazkowski goes on to state that "Tom Emmer respects the Constitution and is devoted to God, his family and the freedom that Minnesotans have died to protect."
