Tom Emmer Joins Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition
Tom Emmer, the former Republican state legislator who lost his bid for Minnesota governor last year to Democrat Mark Dayton, today was named chairman of the state chapter of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. Ralph Reed launched the FFC to be a new and improved Christian Coalition with a special emphasis on linking tea party activists to the Religious Right. Emmer’s gubernatorial bid gained national attention after he indirectly received support from corporations like Target, BestBuy and 3M, who financed a pro-Emmer group, and for his zealous anti-gay beliefs. Emmer donated to the extremist group You Can Run But You Cannot Hide, led by right-wing extremist Bradlee Dean, and even opposed bullying-prevention legislation because it would address anti-gay bullying. He also showed his “support” for “family values” when he proposed legislation that would reduce the penalties for drunk driving, and Emmer himself was ticketed twice for driving under the influence:
The Faith & Freedom Coalition is pleased to announce that it has named Tom Emmer as the organization’s Minnesota Chairman.
Emmer joins the Minnesota Faith & Freedom Coalition amidst a distinguished law career of over 20 years, during which time he grew his firm to over 20 employees. That business combined with his legislative time in the Minnesota state house will serve the Minnesota Faith & Freedom Coalition well. “I’m excited about this opportunity to work with the Minnesota Faith & Freedom Coalition toward building a stronger conservative grassroots movement in Minnesota as we seek to restore America’s greatness and founding principles.” said Emmer.
The Minnesota Faith & Freedom Coalition is committed to educating voters on how new tax increases would impact family budgets as well as the bottom-line of small businesses. Minnesota FFC seeks to empower voters to express their views about what is best for Minnesota families at every level of government. The Minnesota Faith & Freedom Coalition believes strongly that Minnesota state legislators should hear from their constituents who are closest to the grassroots; not from the bullhorns of special interest groups and public employee unions.
