Letter: Seifert’s strategy in run for governor questioned

I read with interest the story in the Pioneer on Marty Seifert, Republican candidate for governor in Minnesota, hitting the road to every corner of the state to meet voters. The story listed several towns Seifert visited, including Grand Forks, N.D. Last time I heard, that neighboring city wasn’t in Minnesota. I also wondered whether he hit the Superior, Wis., corner as well.

Seifert indicated this strategy proved successful for other politicians, like Paul Wellstone, Rudy Perpich and Jesse Ventura. It appears as though this Republican is adopting strategies from the Democratic and Independent parties in his quest for office. Could that be the reason he’s running without party endorsement?
