Who is Kelly Doran?

I’m sure this is a question DFLers and Republicans alike are asking themselves. To answer that question, we’ll go to Minnesota’s paper of record, the Star Tribune.

A business-friendly moderate, Doran said he is better suited to an executive role. A supporter of abortion rights, Doran said he opposes a gay marriage ban in the state constitution and favors a 10 cents-a-gallon gasoline tax…

Moderate?! That’s a riot. Since when did supporting all of the above mean you are a moderate?

MDE has a post on Doran’s Republican connections.

So, Kelly Doran is nothing but a corporate Democrat that gives money to Republicans. This sounds like a bored rich kid looking to buy power.

Those three things do make him moderate. He isn't anti-abortion (an extremist position), he isn't anti-gay (he's not looking for the state to recognize them), and he isn't an anti-tax zealot.

I think you're so far to the right that you don't know what a real moderate is.

Doran is pro-gay marriage (out of touch with at least 60% of MN).

You are right about one thing, he isn't anti-tax. He's for taxing MN motorists during a time when gas prices are at their highest.

An open letter to the Doran campaign: I know this was a staffer posting on the site (I traced the IP address and time stamp back to the Doran office: kellydoran.com (Eschelon Telecommunications Inc)). Please don't hide behind an anonymous handle if you choose to continue this deceptive practice.

hahahahahaha May want to check again there buddy, I'm in Northern Virginia (Cox Internet). Somebody from the campaign probably was looking at the same time, but nobody takes credit for my anonymous comments. He isn't pro-gay marriage (as in he doesn't seem to support recognizing it) and that's a reason why I won't enthusiastically support the man. He's kinda squishy on abortion issues, but he does have the guts to say that we need a way to pay for all the roads you republicans love to use.

For those of you who don't want Republican Minnesota to know who you are or where you are coming from, I suggest getting Firefox with the adblock extension. Then block *.statcounter.*

This is where he gets his info.

For even more fun, load this image into your browser address bar and press refresh like a hundred times: http://c5.statcounter.com/counter.php?sc_project=812273&java=0&security=e6299218&invisible=0

It'll make him think he is popular...

Who says he is pro-gay marriage. That's kind of like saying if your pro-choice, your pro-death right? WRONG! He doesn't want a constitutional amend. banning gay marriage, that doesn't mean he is pro gay marriage.
