On ATC: Lots of politics
Posted at 4:54 PM on November 3, 2006 by Bill Wareham
National Public Radio's Michelle Norris - a Minnesota native - spent the last few days in southern Minnesota and filed a report today on the 1st District congressional race between GOP incumbent Rep. Gil Gutknecht and Democratic challenger Tim Walz.
We've got a ton of political coverage we've cooked up too - Tom Scheck will report on how Mike Hatch has responded to charges he called a reporter a "Republican whore." The short story is he denies he used the word "whore."
Laura McCallum's profile of Gov. Tim Pawlenty runs this evening. Earlier this week she profiled Hatch and IP nominee Peter Hutchinson. All the profiles are available via the Campaign 2006 page.
MPR's Elizabeth Stawicki reports on a race for a state Court of Appeals seat.
Media analyst David Brauer talks about the process of editorial boards endorsing candidates.
And we'll hear from more voters, this time in the 6th District. More candidate statements too.
Outside the realm of politics, ATC host Tom Crann will talk to Star Tribune outdoors writer Dennis Anderson about the opening of the firearms deer hunting season this weekend.
