It's been a big week in the United States, as well as northern MN. We've had coverage from NPR as well as local commentaries and analysis on the impact on where we live in terms of our local and regional elections. Listen to these conversations and let us know your thoughts. Here are MN Legislative results from northern MN:
US House District 8: DFL incumbent Rick Nolan from Crosby
US House District 7: DFL incumbent Colin Peterson from Detroit Lakes
MN Senate District 2: Republican Paul Utke from Park Rapids
On our weekly segment Making Sausage we find out about the messy business of government and politics. We also meet our elected officials and find out about elections and voting. This week, longtime DFL commentator and election judge Colleen Nardone on what the constitutional amendment on the ballot is all about. One thing we know: if you don't vote for it you are voting NO. The questions is: should MN Legislators have the ability to raise their own salaries?
