Minnesota Public Radio Stories

  • Conservatism's uncertain future
    The rise of the Tea Party as a force in American politics is raising new questions for Republicans as they try to ride voter anger to midterm victories. Does the Tea Party's focus on economics and smaller government mean that issues like abortion and gay marriage will no longer be as prominent? And will Christian conservatives be happy in a Republican Party less focused on social issues?9:06 a.m.
    Matt Lewis: Conservative blogger and columnist for Politics Daily.
    Joshua Trevino: Partner at Rogue Strategic Services, a political and communications consulting firm, and co-founder of the blog Redstate.com. He worked in the Bush administration from 2001 - 2004.
  • Poet D.A. Powell reflects on success and failure
    Days before D.A. Powell won a prestigious $100,000 award for his poetry, he received a stock rejection letter from the New Yorker magazine for a poem he'd submitted. "I kind of like that," Powell told the San Francisco Chronicle in March 2010. "It says that no matter what happens telling you you are on the right path, you are never quite there. You really don't want life to get too easy." He joins Midmorning to talk about his latest collection of poems.10:06 a.m.
    D.A. Powell: Poet. His latest poetry collection is "Chronic."
  • The phone wars heat up
