It appears that the national heavyweights want to turn out the Democratic vote in Minnesota. Illinois Senator Barack Obama will appear at a rally with Klobuchar and Congressional Tim Walz on Monday. Massachusetts Senator John Kerry (the Democratic nominee for President in 2004) will be in Mankato for Klobuchar and Walz (i'm told klobuchar will not be there). Finally former Vice President Al Gore, the 2000 Democratic nominee for president, will be in Minneapolis on Thursday.
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.
