2018 will be a big year for Minnesota politics. With an open governors race, all executive branch offices and the Minnesota House of Representatives highlighting the state-level races as well as both US Senate and all US House seats from the Minnesota delegation on the ballot, this election is sure to be one of the most contested, and expensive, in the state’s history. It’s never too soon to learn about the election’s impacts and policies that could affect your bottom line.

Our featured pair of political analysts are frequent commentators on Minnesota Public Radio and other media outlets across Minnesota and the country. Attendees will also have time for Q&A so you can engage directly with our speakers on the issues most important to you.

Breakfast is served at 7:30 am and the program begins at 8:00 am.
