Trump abruptly ended all stimulus negotiations on Tuesday afternoon.
In the short term, not much.
Where he went. Who he met. And who traveled with him.
This week from Washington, Rep. Jim Hagedorn’s consultant, Rep. Angie Craig’s unusual election and the NRCC again.
This week from Washington, Rep. Tom Emmer runs the show, the mayor of Bemidji talks about Trump’s visit, and why you may have to wait longer for election results.
While publicly disavowing the QAnon conspiracy, Emmer and the National Republican Congressional Committee are still backing candidates that have publicly promoted the fringe theories.
With a big uptick in mail-in voting driven by the pandemic and tight contests in several key states, it may take a few more hours — or days — than usual to know the result of the 2020 presidential election.
This week from Washington, the agriculture industry wants to keep Collin Peterson right where he is; a House resolution on discrimination; and what Amy Klobuchar is up to.
Bemidji Mayor Rita Albrecht is helping facilitate the president’s campaign stop, a highly anticipated event for the city of 15,000 people. At the same time, she’s running as a Democrat for a seat in the Minnesota Senate.
Klobuchar is one of the few DFLers popular in Greater Minnesota, where Republicans have come to dominate in recent elections.
In former Minnesota Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach, Republicans thought they had found the perfect candidate to unseat the fifteen-term incumbent. The ag industry doesn’t appear to share their enthusiasm.
This week from Washington, Trump’s efforts to win Minnesota, Jason Lewis’ time hawking supplements, and what’s happening with Jim Hagedorn’s office.
With visits from the president, vice president, Donald Trump, Jr., and Lara Trump the Trump campaign seems to be making a serious effort in Minnesota. Could it work?
The Virginia mayor describes himself as a “lifelong Democrat,” but endorsed Donald Trump in 2016 and Republican Rep. Pete Stauber in 2018.
Recent cuts at USPS have raised concerns about changes in service — and problems with vote-by-mail.
This week from Washington, big spending in Hagedorn’s office, what’s going on at the RNC and an update on the CD-7 race.
Hagedorn recently made headlines for spending 40% of his congressional office’s annual budget in the first quarter of 2020 — much of it with a firm part-owned by one of his staffers.
Incumbent DFLer Rep. Collin Peterson’s margins of victory have been shrinking in recent elections. Will a better-known, better-funded opponent — and having Trump on the ballot — finally end his congressional career?
This week from Washington, the Democratic convention, Rep. Jim Hagedorn fires his chief of staff and Trump’s new unemployment payments aren’t coming any time soon.
Minnesota officials are still waiting for guidance on how to implement the new program — if it’s even legal.
