Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Coming off of several Minnesota school elections, a Republican candidate for Governor says control in education needs to shift. Former State Auditor Pat Anderson says she believes in re-structuring the tax system to decrease taxes that discourage businesses growth.

In turn, she’d broaden consumption taxes. For example, adding a clothing sales tax. Anderson also favors putting more control over education back in the hands of school administrators instead of lawmakers.

“We are spending an incredible amount of money doing things that are mandated from the state and federal government, and its wasting money. It doesn't make sense.”

On the hot topic of health care, Anderson says she believes in providing more choice to patients and doctors and disbanding state medical programs to give that money to low income individuals to make their own decisions.
