Spelling is hard! Gov. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., campaign flyer promises to build a better ‘Minnesta’

That’s a tweet from Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson, poking fun at a Dayton campaign flyer that misspells “Minnesota.”

Here’s the “full story” from Johnson’s Facebook page:

Yesterday, a young man knocked on our door. Thor answered. The young man said “Do you know who your household is voting for in the governor’s race?” Thor: “Jeff Johnson is my dad, so probably him.” Young man: “Dude, that’s so cool – I actually got Jeff Johnson’s house on my list. You should give this brochure to your dad, he’ll think it’s funny that they misspelled Minnesota on the top.”

We don’t like the campaign worker’s politics, but we can’t help but admire his sense of humor.

Anyway, it didn’t take long for mockery to ensue:

“A Better Minnesta” even has its own Twitter account:

Ouch!
