The Minnesota DFL Party

Minnesota Republicans have been caught recruiting 3rd party candidates to siphon votes from DFLers and what that means for future elections.  

They also discuss how Minnesota Republicans voted on a commission to investigate the January 6th insurrection and Congressman Jim Hagedorn's newfound support for President Biden's American Rescue Plan. And Representative Carlos Mariani joins the pod to talk about how listeners can take action to help pass criminal justice reform.
