Also, as the Star Tribune reported over the weekend
The Minneapolis-based retailer has been in private talks with the nation's largest gay-rights advocacy group, Human Rights Campaign, but it's unclear whether the company will take action. The group, based in Washington, D.C., has demanded that both Target and Best Buy make an equal or greater contribution to groups supporting gay-rights candidates in Minnesota.
Fun fact: Target's previous name and corporate incarnation was as the Dayton-Hudson corporation -- the century-old family business of former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton, who is now the Democratic nominee in the gubernatorial race.
The TPM Poll Average puts Dayton ahead of Emmer and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner by a margin of 44.2%-33.6%-9.9%.
