Minnesota GOP reassessing after slap-down at polls

Larry Jacobs calls election in Minnesota a "real comedown" for the Republican party.

"The Republicans, when they were in the Legislature, kind of veered off into a pretty hard line on no new taxes and significant budget cuts as the strategy. This is not surprising," Mr. Jacobs said, explaining GOP losses. "But Minnesotans are not on that page. I think the addition of the social policy issues further complicated the challenge for Republicans."
