While August is typically the time that members of Congress head home during recess to check in with folks through town hall meetings, four of Minnesota’s House members aren’t planning any this year, says a report from No Labels.
Nationally, 60 percent of House members don’t plan town hall meetings, according to the list, so Minnesota is better than average.
The list says Reps. Chip Cravaack, Keith Ellison, Betty McCollum and Erik Paulsen are planning meetings.
Reps. Michele Bachmann, John Kline, Collin Peterson and Tim Walz aren’t.
MPR notes that Bachmann actually is having a town hall meeting, but it’s in South Carolina.
