The Minnesota state primary, the State Fair and Labor Day are now behind us, which can mean only one thing around MinnPost: pumpkin spice lattes.

That, and the 2022 election.

Well before I arrived at our Marcy-Holmes global headquarters in 2014, government, politics and elections were the raisin bread and cinnamon butter of MinnPost. Yet also enshrined around here was a strategy of covering all that a little differently — less breathless horse race calls and insider gossip and more analysis and explanation of what is happening and why.

We also try to give readers — and voters — guides such as Who’s Running?, Races to Watch, and campaign finance dashboards. With Walker Orenstein and me taking on the statewide and legislative races, D.C. correspondent Ana Radalat watching races for Congress, Greta Kaul leading our MinnPost/Change Research poll and Mohamed Ibrahim keeping a fresh eye on county races in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, we feel good about our abilities and our plans.

Which all leads to the ask: While pumpkin spice lattes are pretty cheap, all this other stuff runs a little bit more expensive. If you can help with a donation, we’d be tremendously thankful.
