DFL

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. 

Colleen Nardone joined us on the Thursday morning show.  She talked about the historic elections in Minnesota this week, and how national media was likening the Democratic win across the country to getting Democrats more engaged.  Colleen had a different opinion.
