Independence Party gubernatorial nominee Tom Horner today was endorsed by two PACs affiliated with real estate groups.
In a joint endorsement, PACs affiliated with the Minnesota Association of Realtors and the Builders Association of Minnesota threw their support behind Horner. The two statewide groups represent residential real estate concerns at the state Capitol.
Horner, who is running in a three-way race for governor, has support from high-profile members of the Twin Cities real estate scene such as Ryan Companies vice president Rick Collins and Coldwell Banker Burnett chairman Ralph Burnett. They have organized fundraisers for Horner.
