News Headlines

After a long battle with U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., President George W. Bush won re-election as president of the United States on Election Day - November 2, 2004. Bush won with about 51% of the vote, to Kerry's 48%. Minnesota was one of a handful of swing states nationwide. After dozens of visits by the top-of-the-ticket candidates and their surrogates, it was Kerry who won Minnesota with 51% of the vote.

The November election capped a year-long sprint that at one point featured about 10 candidates. Kerry won the Democratic nomination for president in July. In winning the nomination, Kerry survived several shake-ups of his campaign after former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean spent most of 2003 as the frontrunner. But the Iowa caucuses, and an ill-timed scream, doomed Dean, and forced out Sen. Richard Gephardt. And Kerry rolled on Super Tuesday. Kerry's coronation at the convention in Boston that set up the November showdown with President. Bush. Republicans held their convention in New York City in late August.

Bush rallies the base in Rochester airport stop
President Bush made a whistle-stop plea for votes in this traditionally conservative pocket of Minnesota on Wednesday, part of a frenetic campaign week that suggests the candidates are shifting from chasing undecideds to turning out the faithful.
Bush in Rochester
Minnesota has had more than its fair share of presidential visits this year. Both President George W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry are in town this week. Bush makes a campaign stop in Rochester Wednesday afternoon, and Minnesota Public Radio has live coverage and analysis.
Bush and Kerry's economic plans: Less difference than meets the eye
President George W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry have different ideas for improving the economy. Polls show the economy is an important issue for voters going into the presidential election.
Slicing the Spin: Jobs and the Economy
Both presidential candidates use the rhetoric of jobs to sell their economic plans. But economists dispute whether presidents really can improve the nation's economy within their terms. Midmorning's weekly series Slicing the Spin dissects the candidates' economic plans.
Edwards kicks off frenzied week of presidential campaigning in Minnesota
Both presidential campaigns are giving lots of attention to Minnesota this week. Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards made a stop in Hibbing Tuesday night. This was the Kerry campaign's first big rally on the Iron Range. Edwards is the first of the four top-of-the-ticket candidates who will visit Minnesota before the end of the week. President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Democratic candidate John Kerry all make campaign stops in the state over the next few days.
The Choice 2004 - part 2
In the 1980s, John Kerry established himself in the U.S. Senate. The former prosecutor led investigations into Iran-Contra and other scandals. George W. Bush launched business ventures, with mixed success, and worked on the campaigns of others before winning the governorship of Texas in 1994. In hour two of this Frontline special from American RadioWorks, we look at how John Kerry and George W. Bush came of age as politicians and how their very different histories and personalities might shape their approach to the presidency.
The Choice 2004 - part 1
Two candidates for President, offering two directions for America. They are men of the same generation, Yale graduates from privileged New England families. But they took starkly different paths as they formed their values and politics. In the first hour of this Frontline report from American RadioWorks, a look at George W. Bush and John Kerry as young men.
Presidential candidates focus much attention on Wisconsin
There should be no doubt, looking at the candidates' travel schedules, that Minnesota and Wisconsin are battleground states. Democrats John Kerry and John Edwards will both be in Minnesota this week, as will President Bush. Mr. Bush is also coming back to Wisconsin on Wednesday, when he'll be in Eau Claire. Mr. Bush was in the Badger state this past Friday; so was John Kerry. Trying to keep up with the candidates is enough to exhaust any political reporter. One of the best in Wisconsin is Dee Hall. She's covering the presidential campaign for the Wisconsin State Journal, and she spoke with Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer.
Neighborhood friction is a sign of the times
Political yard signs are the primary way average citizens advertise their preference as voters. In this divisive election year, however, they've become markers on a battlefield. In some Minnesota neighborhoods, the signs alternate between Kerry/Edwards and Bush/Cheney from house to house, sometimes for an entire block. How does this battleground challenge neighborly ties?
