2010 Minnesota primary election results

A vigorous three-way race for governor this fall is now a sure thing. That much is clear as this page goes to press, before the full results of Tuesday’s primary election are known.

Voters in the Independence Party primary nominated Tom Horner, the IP endorsee and longtime public-relations professional. Horner’s dispatch of his most visible challenger, magazine publisher Rob Hahn, and three others was the handiwork of a politically competent campaign, one that’s positioned to grow in coming days.

Horner is a former Republican and former chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Dave Durenberger with significant ties to the remnant of the Minnesota GOP’s once-dominant moderate wing. Those voters are bound to give Horner’s candidacy a closer look now, as he faces GOP nominee Tom Emmer — also a winner yesterday over token opposition — and the DFL candidate.
