Dahlberg, Ortman Say McFadden Evading Stands in Senate Race

Created: 04/24/2014 1:04 PM WDIO.com

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Two Republicans competing for Minnesota's U.S. Senate nomination are accusing a leading GOP contender in the race of ducking tough questions.

St. Louis County Commissioner Chris Dahlberg says investment banker Mike McFadden is insulting voters with evasive answers on health care, immigration, guns and other topics. State Sen. Julianne Ortman says McFadden hasn't given straight answers. The three candidates are vying to face Democratic Sen. Al Franken in November.

Dahlberg criticized McFadden at a news conference Thursday. Ortman weighed in later. McFadden spokesman Tom Erickson says the campaign is focused on Franken and says Republicans should avoid "beating each other up."

Dahlberg and Ortman won't press on if someone else is endorsed at the party's May state convention. McFadden intends to run in an August primary no matter what.
