Two weeks ago my opponent publicly admitted that his side was using unethical campaign tactics when they made viscous and dishonest attacks against me. This week they continue to make the same attacks in the form of mass mailings. They are also using a strategy called push polling where they call voters and ask misleading questions that imply horrible things about the person they are attacking. It has been discovered that the calls against me are coming from Utah.
A lot of money is pouring into this race from powerful special interests that have no connection to our area. They have targeted me because they have no control over me. They attack me because my only special interests are the people of Western Minnesota. -- Kent Eken, Candidate for Minnesota Senate District 4
