MinnPost goes beyond horse-race election coverage

To us, politics isn’t a sport, and it shouldn’t be covered that way.

As you know, we’re well into the 2022 election cycle. This November, the Minnesota ballot will be full of key races: the governor’s office, the entire state legislature, all state constitutional officers and all U.S. House seats.

MinnPost is committed to going beyond horse-race election coverage, bringing you deep into the dynamics shaping these races and, most importantly, looking at the far-reaching consequences of their results.

To us, politics isn’t a sport, and it shouldn’t be covered that way. This is much bigger than winners and losers. Policy debates and legislation impact people in very real ways. Our job is to explain the contours of those debates and equip you to be part of the process.

We think this work is critical to the strength of Minnesota and our democracy. That’s why we make our reporting available to all readers free of charge — no paywall!

Our nonprofit newsroom can only do this work thanks to support from readers like you at all levels. Will you be a vital part of this essential coverage with a tax-deductible donation by March 17?


With donations of all sizes, MinnPost members provide critical support for our in-depth reporting and allow us to make all of our journalism available to all readers for free!
