Gov. Mark Dayton plans to do a governor's radio show soon.
"I wish I could be on the air somewhere tomorrow," Dayton said. "I can't wait to get on the air. It is just a question of where and going through the proper procedure.
Dayton having a weekly radio show follows a tradition of past governors. Both Govs. Jesse Ventura and Tim Pawlenty had Friday morning shows on WCCO that were required, and sometimes interesting, listening for political geeks.
It might take a bit for Dayton to join their ranks.
"We have to go through an open bidding process, competitive bidding process. I understand it took until February for Gov. Pawlenty to get on the air," Dayton said.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
