The University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs is hosting separate forums this week with the three candidates running to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Jim Ramstad, R-Minn.
Republican Erik Paulsen spoke today about global competitiveness (free trade, foreign language education, tax policy, etc.)
DFLer Ashwin Madia spoke yesterday and addressed energy policy (carbon cap and trade, bio-fuels, reducing oil consumption, etc.)
After outlining their proposals, both candidates sat down for a question and answer session with Larry Jacobs, director of the Humphrey Institute's Center for the Study of Politics and Governance.
Independence Party candidate David Dillon gets his turn at the Humphrey Institute lectern on Friday at noon. If you can't be there in person, check Polinaut for the audio.
