With so much at stake for the future of Minnesota, the 2010 governor’s race will be extremely important in electing the state’s next chief executive officer. Minnesota faces a projected $6 billion deficit for the 2011 – 2012 biennium. The business community has a strong vested interest in who will govern Minnesota and how the next governor will set forward a pro-business, pro-jobs, and economic growth-focused agenda.
