GOP Sen. Norm Coleman and Gov. Tim Pawlenty will speak at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. Coleman is set to speak on Wednesday night (which is also when the yet to be announced VP will speak). Pawlenty will speak on the final night of the convention.
Will Coleman wear a paper bag over his head and disguise his voice? Someone should try and sneak one of those Dubya impersonators into the convention and chase all the Republicans in tight races around the hall trying to embrace them.
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.
