Dig Deep

Segment on Morning Show

Our commentators - Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn began the conversation about the State of Rural by telling us about their upbringing, political beginnings and why they choose to live in rural Minnesota.

In this segment they reference Bill Bishop's book "The Big Sort".

Sometimes it's good to learn about the past to understand the present AND the future.  Does the present repeat the past or does it parallel the past?  Or neither?

In this installment Aaron and Chuck go more deeply into the origins of the Republican and Democratic parties, specifically in Minnesota.  They begin the conversation with Republican President Abraham Lincoln.
