Rep. Kent Eken, Twin Valley, Minn., Published October 12 2012
Letters: Special interests go on the attackTwo weeks ago, my opponent publicly admitted that his side was using unethical campaign tactics when they made vicious and dishonest attacks against me. This week, they continue to make the same attacks in the form of mass mailings. They are also using a strategy called push polling, where they call voters and ask misleading questions that imply horrible things about the person they are attacking. It has been discovered that the calls against me are coming from Utah.
A lot of money is pouring into this race from powerful special interests that have no connection to our area. They have targeted me because they have no control over me. They attack me because my only special interests are the people of western Minnesota.
Rep. Eken, DFL-District 2A, is a candidate for Minnesota Senate District 4.
