VIEW NOW: Watch Franken vs McFadden, Dayton vs Johnson

State PoliticsThis morning, U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) will debate GOP challenger and investment broker Mike McFadden for their first formal debate of Election 2014, which takes place just over a month from now. Tonight, Gov. Mark Dayton (D-Minn.) will debate GOP challenger and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson in their first debate.

The Uptake will provide live coverage of both the 8 a.m. U.S. Senate debate in Duluth and the 7 p.m. Governor’s debate in Rochester. They’ve provided this blog with embedded coverage of both events (below), but you may also check out the archives at The Uptake’s website after the fact.

UPDATE: If you’re having trouble accessing this feed, try the MPR feed.

UPDATE 2: Here is the YouTube footage of the Oct. 1 U.S. Senate debate.

    It would have been nice to hear Mafadden’s closing remarks, why the loss of audio?…I’m curious.

    • The file comes via The Uptake. They had some technical difficulties during the Debate and perhaps that is the reason for any audio problems. I will say that I’d be very surprised if the problem goes uncorrected. In a pinch, you could check out the audio version which is archived at

  2. Leta Bezdecheck says

    Listen to McFadden pander to the local interests of the crowd. Pathetic.
