Anti-tax group's Minn. rally attracts big figure


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — More than 600 people gathered at the Minnesota Capitol for the Taxpayer Freedom Rally on Saturday.

Majority President Dan McGrath said the annual anti-tax rally is the biggest annual conservative gathering in the state and is particularly important this year after a tough election for Republicans.

"This is a great opportunity to get people remotivated," McGrath said. "There are a lot of dejected people. And I think it helps re-energize them."
