BREAKING NEWS - Outstate Voters Care About More Than the Bachmann Amendment!

The March 15th issue of the Grant County Herald reported on a recent town meeting held by Rep. Torrey Westrom. He is a 5th term Republican from District 11A, representing Elbow Lake and the surrounding area.

The representative and his constituents had what appeared to be a detailed discussion on the state budget, school funding, property taxes, unfunded mandates, and a gas tax.

A question was asked about the Bachmann amendment. The Representative, who strongly supports the measure, said passage was unlikely in the Senate. End of story.

And yet, Senator Wannabe Mark Kennedy, the Governor, and the state GOP office maintain that 'defending marriage' is the #1 issue on everybody's mind. Something isn't adding up.
