Minnesota governor hopeful Horner seeks votes at simulcast of Stewart rally

ST. PAUL (AP) — The Independence Party's Tom Horner is trying to feed off two well-known comedians as he searches for votes in the Minnesota governor race.

Horner popped in Saturday at a St. Paul simulcast of the "Rally to Restore Sanity" being held in Washington by comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Horner told undecided voters not to be afraid to take a chance on a third-party candidate.

Horner says his rivals, Republican Tom Emmer and Democrat Mark Dayton, have resorted to bumper-sticker slogans instead of sound policies to meet Minnesota's challenges.

More than 100 people were at the simulcast event at the Capitol Rotunda, and some said they hadn't made up their minds yet on the governor's race.
