MinnPost Social — One year out: a way too early look at the 2020 campaign in Minnesota and beyond

  • This event has passed.

As you may have heard, there’s a pretty big election happening in 2020.

There’s the presidential contest, of course, in which Minnesota’s electoral votes may play an important role for the first time in forever. But that’s hardly the only reason why election 2020 is going to be a very big deal. Several of the state’s congressional contests are likely to be highly competitive, and U.S. Senator Tina Smith will once again be on the ballot. Oh, and all 201 seats in the Minnesota Legislature will be up for election, contests that will help decide who gets to draw the lines for all of Minnesota’s legislative and congressional districts.

To get a better understanding of where all those campaigns are and where they’re going one year out, join MinnPost writers Peter Callaghan, Greta Kaul and Walker Orenstein 5:30 – 7 p.m. on October 28 at Elsie’s.

The lively Q&A session is part of our MinnPost Social event series, presented by RBC Wealth Management and Great River Energy, in which MinnPost journalists share insights with audience members in a casual atmosphere that includes a cash bar and light appetizers.
