DFL legislative leaders and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty are going to start talking about the 2010 legislative session, which is expected to including lots of discussion about the state's budget problems, tomorrow.
From the governor's office:
Governor Pawlenty has invited DFL legislative leaders to meet with him for breakfast tomorrow morning at the Governor’s Residence to touch base in advance of the 2010 legislative session.
Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller, Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, Assistant Senate Majority Leader Tarryl Clark, and House Majority Leader Tony Sertich are planning to attend. Minnesota Management & Budget Commissioner Tom Hanson and the Governor’s Director of Legislative and Cabinet Affairs Chris DeLaForest will also be at the meeting.
The breakfast starts at 7:30 a.m. and is expected to last an hour or so.
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."
