Reader's View: One-issue-voter claim was offensive
I found quotes by some especially offensive in the July 26 story, "A DFL divided: Statement highlights conflicts between local environmentalists, moderates in the party." Those of us who are vocal to our opposition to copper-sulfide mining are not one-issue voters.
