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.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
