DFLers Sharpen Tongues In Final Primary Debate

Using a St. Paul theater as their courtroom and Minnesota voters as the jury, DFL candidates for governor Sunday made their closing arguments. In a debate sponsored by Minnesota Public Radio, Mark Dayton, Margaret Anderson Kelliher and Matt Entenza shared a stage for the last time before Tuesday's primary. In what is expected to be a low-turnout election, where perhaps as few as 250,000 DFLers will cast ballots, any of the three could use the extra boost a debate success might give them. None risked unveiling new attacks, but each sharpened their message to appeal to any last-minute deciders.
