Hancock helped create a surplus

Thumbing through the Pioneer the other day, I noticed an attack ad against Rep. Dave Hancock. The DFL Caucus must be getting its facts from the same grab bag it gets its pictures. The Dave Hancock who was shown a Canadian politician who happens to have the same name, is obviously not the Dave Hancock who voted to pay the school shift back. St. Paul Democrats are so out of touch they don’t even know who Dave Hancock is. How can we trust these “truths” if they can’t even get the picture of their opponent right?

The truth of the matter, let’s keep in mind come election day, is the budget Rep. Hancock supported helped turn a deficit created by the DFL Caucus into a $1.2 billion surplus, a surplus that continues to grow.
