29. I believe Kerry won by that margin in Minnesota.
Edited on Tue Nov-11-08 04:47 PM by MNReformer
Obama won by 10 points. What is "curious" to say the least in Minnesota is that a state that is decidedly blue overall--in its Twin Cities urban areas and along the Iron Range--would "elect" someone like Norm Coleman, or Tim Pawlenty or Michelle Bachmann--while also electing Paul Wellstone, Hubert Humphrey, Amy Klobuchar, Walter Mondale, Mark Dayton etc. This is completely inconsistent. We had a very partisan Republican secretary of state here until 2006. We worked hard to elect Mark Ritchie instead. I dare say that if Mary Kiffmeyer had interfered with the election on her own behalf it would have been quickly questioned and/or the voters would have initiated investigations. That same election left me wondering how on earth Mike Hatch could have "lost" to Tim Pawlenty, when we elected Amy Klobuchar by a wide margin. It makes NO sense.
