Letter: Juhnke has support

Is Al Juhnke a conservative? Webster's New World Dictionary describes "conservative" as "moderate, prudent, safe."

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Political Action Committee states in its Aug. 17 letter addressed to Rep. Juhnke: "On behalf of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Political Action Committee, I am pleased to inform you that you have received MFB PAC endorsement in your current election bid. We appreciated your support of Farm Bureau policy."

The letter is signed: Fran Miron, Chair, MFB PAC state committee.

In another letter from Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life state PAC, a letter states: "Dear Al.

"The MCCL State PAC is pleased to endorse your candidacy in the 2010 election for Minnesota House District 13B.

"Our endorsement is based upon your 100 percent voting record since your last election and your continued commitment to the pro-life cause, as evident from your responses on the 2010 MCCL State Legislative Candidate Questionnaire.

"You may publicly use the MCCL State PAC endorsement if you choose.

"The MCCL State PAC is a separate, segregated fund of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, Inc."

Some people and churches would have you believe that their candidate is the only candidate.

That just is not true.
