Some things rise above politics. Health and safety, for example.
Last week, Michael Brodkorb, deputy chair of the Republican Party, was at the convention center in Duluth scouting DFLers.
“In the nosebleed seats,” said Brodkorb.
As he was coming down the steps, he stumbled and started to fall. A man reached out and grabbed him, likely preventing him from falling down 20 concrete steps.
“I thanked him and told him you just stopped a Republican from going out of here all bloody,’’ Brodkorb said.
