Mike Hatch on Principles & Values


2006: ran for governor, while serving as Attorney General

Pawlenty's chief competitor in the 2006 election was Democrat Mike Hatch, the state's two-term Attorney General. Hatch, 57, was a trial lawyer specializing in commercial law. He was active in state politics for most of his career, previously serving as chairman of the state DFL and as a cabinet member in Governor Rudy Perpich's administration. He was a fierce competitor known for his "rough-and-tumble politics." The Pioneer Press noted, "Hatch is a bare-knuckled political street fighter who, during a quarter century as a major player in Minnesota politics, has made a lot of enemies." Hatch said the state was a "mess" and accused Pawlenty of having "almost a Ferris Bueller mentality."
