Budget was gridlock -- how will you reach across the aisle?
Dan: Government has not worked well for you, why I am committed to this race. We need to bring in leadership, sit around table, labor leaders, teachers, administrators, talk about changes they want. Need someone who is strong enough to cut government. We could be great again. If we don't change direction, we won't get there. Cut gov't where it needs to be cut.
Ned: A lot of people like D legislature, R governor -- hasn't worked -- finger pointing, blame-shifting, don't know how to reform. I am not afraid to take on both sides. Make sure these are fundamental changes. I will listen to best minds and present an honest budget. It could be a tough 4 year gig and then on you go, but I am willing to take that chance and make the changes we need.
