The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza writes in "The Fix" that Minnesota's Senate Race between Republican Mark Kennedy and Democrat Amy Klobuchar isn't that competitive...yet. He says the open seat is a tough but winnable race for Republican Congressman Mark Kennedy. He adds the two candidates are content with issuing policy statements and raising dough until the fall. No argument here. The State Fair is when this race starts to get cookin'.
The feature examines statements made by Minnesota politicians and checks them for accuracy. Based on data analysis, document reviews and interviews with non-partisan analysts, statements are rated either true, false or inconclusive.
