Tim Nelson, Minnesota Public Radio
The downgrade of federal debt is expected to trickle down through Minnesota's economy in coming weeks, but no one knows for sure what that will look like. We already know that some of the state's flagship companies have taken a hit -- SuperValu and Ameriprise Financial lost more than 12 percent in the stock market yesterday. And more uncertainty lies ahead for the public and private sector.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Minnesota Public Radio News reporter Tim Nelson who's been focusing on how the downgrade affects the state.
