Anti-gay Challengers Lose Against Dean Johnson and Paul Koering

I'm sure Goedker's idiotic blog didn't help him one bit.

Dean Johnson got more votes in the primary than his challenger, and the Republican combined. I think he's safe in the general.

The Twin cities groups, the Minnesota Family Council, Minnesota Citizens in Defense of Marriage, and EdAction threw all they could into defeating Koering and they failed. This will mean their influence will be significantly less at the legislature next year.

The Republican Party of Minnesota deserves kudos for putting resources into helping Paul Koering. Things are changing in the Republican party in Minnesota, and I'd encourage gays who have left the party in disgust to come back.
