Flap over Mn governor candidate comment

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Minnesota Republican gubernatorial hopeful Dave Thompson is getting flak from liberals for a comment he made on his radio show that "no one is trying to raise a family on minimum wage, and if they are, they have no business having a family."

Carrie Lucking with Alliance For A Better Minnesota responds it's none of Thompson's business.

She says it shows disdain for people who are just trying to get ahead.

Thompson says the alleged comment dates back to Christmas Eve 2006, he doesn't remember making it, and there's no way to verify that he did.

Thompson says he doesn't disparge hard-working people, whether they're working at minimum wage or for a fairly large salary.
