Larry Jacobs on key factors in Minnesota's 2012 legislative elections

In this video from Senate Media Services, which we found via politics.mn, Humphrey School of Public Affairs expert Dr. Larry Jacobs discusses the factors he sees as most important in determining the outcome of the 2012 Minnesota legislative races, and why those races are important to the state. Jacobs suggests several factors that might weigh against the GOP in this election cycle, but is careful to note that much will depend on who shows up at the polls.
