Gov. Mark Dayton and the chairs of the state’s two major political parties are scheduled to appear tonight on TPT’s public affairs television show Almanac.
The Nov. 4 election is coming into better focus, with just over seven weeks to go, and absentee voting now available.
Dayton will be asked about a couple big political problems that flared this week: MNsure’s biggest insurance company announced it won’t be back on the state’s health exchange, and, of course, the Vikings situation. Dayton was a major supporter of the public subsidy for the billion-dollar Vikings stadium, and publicly called for Adrian Peterson’s benching after the child abuse indictment in Texas.
DFL Chair Ken Martin and GOP Chair Keith Downey will get a chance to push their agendas, too, as the state House is up for grabs this cycle.
The show airs at 7 p.m. on Channel 2 in the Twin Cities, and can be streamed later.
