Politics Friday: 3rd District debate and the campaign for Minnesota Senate
Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District was once a solidly Republican district, but since 2019 it’s been represented by Democrat Dean Phillips. In this episode of Politics Friday, Phillips debates his Republican challenger Tom Weiler.
Mike Mulcahy moderates a debate about what Congress can do about abortion, inflation, public safety, social security and more.
Later in the hour, Mike talks to Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (R-Winona) and Sen. Erin Murphy (DFL-St. Paul) about next week’s election.
