Ready the horses; MN-8 charge to begin

Minnesota Public Radio has a nice summary of the MN-8 Congressional race. It’s a good primer before I release the audio and video from my interviews with DFL candidates Jeff Anderson, Tarryl Clark and Rick Nolan, recorded Wednesday at the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm.

The candidates weighed in on hot-button issues like the federal budget, nonferrous mining, health care reform and public criticisms they’ve received. I think they revealed their stylistic differences and varied approaches to the job of a member of Congress, even if many of their positions lined up.

We are in production now. I’ll be releasing the video here at the blog early next week, probably Monday. We are also making the video available to other media outlets in a sort of Creative Commons fashion, so I’ll let you know where else you can see it. The audio from the interviews will be edited into packages that will air on 91.7 KAXE. You’ll be able to hear those online as well.

I am in the process of scheduling the final interview in the series with Rep. Chip Cravaack. I thank all the candidates for agreeing to this interview series. My goal is to give everyone a sense of who these candidates are and how they approach things. So far, I think that’s happened. Stay tuned!
