Anderson sketches out bid for Minnesota governor

ST. PAUL – Former State Auditor Pat Anderson said as Minnesota governor she’d back an an expansion of the sales tax opposite reductions in corporate and individual income taxes.

The Republican candidate set off Monday on a 14-city tour. She said voters can expect her to lay out 365 ideas for improving Minnesota over the 365 days until the 2010 election.

Among her plans would be to apply sales taxes to services and clothing if income tax rates were cut. She also took aim at a business tax-break program championed by Gov. Tim Pawlenty as being counter to pro-market principles.

Anderson is the only Republican in an eight-candidate field who has won a statewide race before.
