Candidates for Minnesota governor court rural votes at FarmFest forum


August 9, 2018

MORGAN — The five major candidates for Minnesota governor chased support from rural voters on Wednesday, promising to partner with farmers and the food industry as they made their first and only joint appearance ahead of next week’s primary election.

Erin Murphy, Attorney General Lori Swanson and U.S. Rep. Tim Walz of the DFL; and Republican former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson — rarely directly engaged with one another.
