Angie Craig Has The Path To Winning In 2018 For CD2
by Dave Mindeman

I spent some time with Angie Craig on Tuesday morning. We had a great discussion - we talked policy for over an hour and a half.

With all the concerns over health care, I can't imagine that Angie Craig would not be the best person imaginable to evaluate that policy as the next Congress tackles how to fix it.

Although I, personally, favor a single payer plan - we both had to agree that it isn't quite as simple as one would hope. If single payer gets sidetracked or cannot be made to . . .

Nothing Personal Against Erdmann -But It Needs To Be Angie Craig
by Dave Mindeman

This cycle I am going to be a lot more blunt about what I think. Some people are going to push back on that, and frankly, that is fine. Do it. The discussion is necessary.

In the 2nd Congressional District I have been a little tough on Jeff Erdmann. And it is not because I think he is wrong on the main issues. It is because I think it is too important that we win this seat and that will take the right candidate.

Let me explain.

Jeff Erdmann has no experience in . . .

Trump's Russian Collusion - I No Longer Doubt It
by Dave Mindeman

Well, I am convinced.

Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians to steal the election. The evidence is there, it just has to filter through all the lies and deception.

But it is real.

Not only did this campaign collude, but each and every one of his campaign members agreed to keep their Russian contacts secret and lie about it if necessary.

The list gets long...Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, Donald Jr, Kellyanne Conway, Michael Flynn were the inner circle; while Mike Pence, Devin Nunes, Hope Hicks, and Sean Spicer were the . . .

Republicans Insist On Living In Our Energy Past
by Dave Mindeman

Minnesota Republicans pounced on an announcement from the MN Commerce Department regarding the Enbridge oil pipeline....

"In light of the serious risks and effects on the natural and socioeconomic environments of the existing Line 3 and the limited benefit that the existing Line 3 provides to Minnesota refineries, it is reasonable to conclude that Minnesota would be better off if Enbridge proposed to cease operations of the existing Line 3, without any new pipeline being built."

And what is Pipeline 3?

Enbridge wants to decommission the existing Line 3, which runs from Alberta, . . .

Would Amazon Come To Minnesota?
by Dave Mindeman

There is a lot of talk about Amazon's new hub placement with its 50,000 potential jobs. Axios listed the top 5 contenders in their estimate:

1. Denver
2. Chicago
3. Phoenix
4. Minneapolis
5. Detroit

Denver got the highest marks because?

Superior transit system. If Amazon is going to build a major facility, they need to have their workers with access to a mobile transit system. 50,000 people is a lot of commutes - and car congested highways are going to be a net negative for any location analysis.

Minneapolis gets high . . .
