Hatch on Divisivness
In today's Pioneer Press, Mike Hatch has said "Tim Pawlenty has done more to divide this state than any politician I have known." (Source, Pioneer Press, Nov. 14, 2005)
Ironic, isn't it? Mike Hatch has done more to divide the DFL party than any politician in the history of the DFL party.
Of course, Gov. Pawlenty fires back with this:
He said Hatch earned his reputation as a street fighter in 1990, when he "tried to knee-cap (Gov.) Rudy Perpich" by challenging him in the DFL gubernatorial primary after Perpich gave Hatch a plum Cabinet job as commerce commissioner. (Source, Pioneer Press, Nov. 14, 2005)
