It’s State Fair time, and that means Midway rides, food on a stick, animal banrs, people watching, and of course, politics. Even though this is an “off” election year, the incumbents, challengers and political parties wouldn’t miss the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

  • Issues:Federal immigration reform; Congressional dysfunction; The 2014 Minnesota gubernatorial race; Michele Bachmann’s future; Congressional races to watch; Ranked choice voting in Minneapolis
