On the LeftMN Radio Hour this week we talk about some of the new DFL committee chairs and what this portends for this legislative session. We then discuss some of the reasons why the DFL may want to go slow on Marriage equality, and why those reasons are all bunk.
Our guest this week is Kenza Hadj-Moussa (@KenzaHadjMoussa), communications director for the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless (@MNHomelessCo). She talks with us about many of the hurdles facing the homeless in Minnesota and the issues they are going to be focusing on in the upcoming legislative session.

On the LeftMN Radio Hour this week we talk (gloat is a word that might also describe it) about Tuesdays elections results. Joining us to talk about things nationally is DailyKos Elections Director David Nir.
David gives us an update on the house races that are still uncalled. We than talk with him about election night itself, what were some of the big surprises, what happened with the house and what are things looking like for the next cycle.

The last LeftMN Radio Hour before the election feature talk about Election Stuff!, Election Stuff! and more Election Stuff! We start off talking about the current state of polling on the amendments (this was recorded before the release of the new Public Policy Polling poll).
We talk with proprietor of MinnesotaBrown.com Aaron Brown about the state of play up in Northern Minnesota. Specifically we talk about the Eighth Congressional district and the Fifth Senate district.
Finally we talk about how you can find out where to vote, how to register to vote, how to help your neighbors vote, how to get out the vote.
