Minnesota Public Radio Stories


National Public Radio Stories

  • Romney's Last Appeal To Voters Before Election Day
    Mitt Romney is making his final appearance in the states where he needs to slip past President Obama in Tuesday's election. Over the weekend, Romney traveled more than 5,000 miles and held eight rallies in seven states.
  • Obama Plans Another Campaign Marathon For Monday
    President Obama is milking every last hour from the final day of campaigning. The president is planning another 14-hour, voice-taxing marathon Monday, ending with a final rally in Iowa, where his national campaign began five years ago.
  • America's Changing Face Presents Challenges For The GOP
    In the final days before the election, the parties are doubling down on their convictions. Long-term demographics, however, suggest shifts in America's electorate that could mean big challenges for the Republican Party in coming years — but also could offer some new opportunities.
  • Missouri Ballot Measure Would Raise Cigarette Tax
    Missouri has the lowest cigarette tax in the country and health advocates cite that when pointing to the state's high smoking rates and minimal resources to help people quit. A ballot measure in the state proposes changing that, directing the tax revenue to schools and tobacco prevention programs.
  • Recovery To Take 'Quite A Long Time' In Storm-Ravaged Breezy Point
    The beachfront, blue-collar town in Queens, N.Y., was hit hard not only by Superstorm Sandy's raging winds and floodwaters, but also by a massive fire that tore through the area. More than a hundred homes were destroyed as firefighters battled for nearly 10 hours. A local fire commander says he's hopeful Breezy Point will recover but knows it will take time.
  • New Jersey Residents Cope With Gas Rationing
    Because of Superstorm Sandy, the state is rationing gas according to the final digit on each car's license plate. The system doesn't seem to be shortening the lines much. In Bayonne, home of the biggest oil terminal in New York Harbor, there was only one station open.
  • Post Election: Traditional Ads To Return To TV
    It's been a record year for political spending — an estimated $6 billion. TV ads make up more than half of that amount. But what happens at TV stations when those ads no longer fill the air?
  • Austerity, Euro Troubles Hit Britain's Economy
    Renee Montagne talks to Zanny Minton Beddoes, of The Economist magazine, about the economy in the United Kingdom, and the debate over whether austerity measures are working.
  • 'Wreck It Ralph' Posts Great Opening Day Numbers
    The movie Wreck It Ralph, opened to the largest weekend ever for an animated Disney film, bringing in nearly $50 million. That's despite storm damage from Sandy forcing hundreds of theaters in New York and New Jersey to close.
  • Clock Counts Down On Presidential Campaigns
    Tuesday is Election Day and the presidential race appears too close to call. Political oddsmakers have made President Obama the favorite to win, citing his narrow lead in key states, and also in recent days his narrow lead in most national polls. But even the oddsmakers admit there's a chance the president could lose.
