I will try as hard as possible not to degrade or put down either candidate. I think it's of the utmost importance not to do this because in the end, one of these candidates will be the Republican candidate for governor of Minnesota.
Ultimately, what is most important to me and to most conservatives, is that we don't lose the governor's office to a Democrat. If I, in my decision-making process, put down one of the Republican candidates, I'll be doing the Democrats' job for them.
No matter what happens, we conservatives are all on the same side. Whether we like the results of the endorsement at next week's convention or not, we must live with it and get behind the chosen candidate with all the strength we have, or we will not win the governor's race.
After the endorsement process is over, if each Republican camp snipes at the other instead of working with all their might for the endorsed candidate, maybe we won't deserve to win.
