Bob "Again" Carney, Jr.: Support balanced government with a moderate Republican

Letter to the Editor graphic
We are part of The Trust Project.

I’m Bob “Again” Carney Jr., a Republican “alternative candidate” to Jensen/Birk.

Minnesotans have chosen divided government — a governor and at least one legislative chamber of different parties — for all but two of the last 32 years. There’s a reason for this: Giving each party their own “corner of the ring” is the most practical way to ensure everyone’s voice is heard. In our incredibly divisive political environment, it’s just too dangerous to allow one party to control everything.

We appreciate the PB's willingness to print letters to editor voicing our personal perspectives. While they allow us to vent, they are very limited and inadequate for facilitating meaningful honest discussion and for discerning truth. Vague and false portrayals of our candidates have been made here and printed by the PB.
I am thinking they should change the name of the US Mail to Mystery Mail because you never know when you are going to get it. It is now three days with no mail delivery and when I do get mail often it belongs to someone else. Oh! The mail truck did go by two days in a row but the lady said she was doing packages only.

As a moderate, reasonable Republican, I would be safe for Minnesota if the Republicans do win both houses — and I hope we do. Gov. Walz hasn’t been that bad a governor — and he has proven he can work with a Republican State Senate to produce a limited-growth budget with no shutdown.

Jensen/Birk frankly scares me. Dr. Jensen thinks Steve Simon should be in jail, and he favors abolishing the state income tax, which produces one-third of our revenue. (I’m supporting Simon, a good man, to rebuke Jensen.) Jensen’s campaign is irresponsible and beyond the pale. Unfortunately, we must also view it in the context of escalating nationwide threats of violence and Civil War from Republicans. As just one example, a Missouri Senate candidate is pitching “RINO hunting permits.”

This is why I’m asking everyone to vote for me in the GOP primary for Governor — to return our state GOP to sanity. If I lose, I’ll support Walz and a GOP legislature in the general election.
