On this weeks show we talk with former United State Senator and current candidate for Minnesota's Supreme Court, Dean Barkley. Senator Barkley discusses judicial elections abstractly, and how they are different from other political races, more specifically. We then get into some generalities about judicial philosophy, because of course, you can't talk specifics with a judge or judicial candidate!
We also catch up with Aaron of the Range, and by that I mean Aaron Brown, of MinnesotaBrown.com. With Aaron we talk about the recent developments in Minnesota's eighth congressional district race between Representative Chip Cravaack and Rick Nolan.
