More on the SD 16 Impromptu Meeting With Norm Coleman

I talked with Chris Kumpula today, and he gave me some additional details about the meeting with Norm Coleman. A number of SD 16 Republican activists decided to go to a Norm Coleman public appearance in Cambridge. Coleman's campaign agreed to shorten Coleman's speech, so that Coleman would have time to meet privately with the activists.

Kumpula also said that he was in a meeting with activists talking with both Mark and Heidi Olson, and Mark Olson claimed the typewriter incident was an "urban legend." The problem with that claim, is that it was covered in the press at the time.

Kumpula said he was disappointed in the actions of the State Republican Party (passing a resolution to withhold financial support from Olson's campaign).
