State Rep. Chris Rants believes that if the Republicans want to win the governor's office, they must offer voters solutions rather than a list of things they oppose. …… Returning to his theme of offering positive solutions, Rants outlined how he would address the budget deficit if he's elected governor.  He said reopening contract negotiations with the state's largest employee union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, would be his first move.
