Former Republican U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe will headline a June event in Minneapolis, hosted by WomenWinning.
Snowe, a centrist from Maine, retired last year saying: "I do not realistically expect the partisanship of recent years in the Senate to change over the short term."
According to WomenWinning, which helps female candidates who support abortion access, Snowe "will be speaking to the theme 'It Takes Everyone to Make History' while telling her story and speaking to the importance of electing women to government."
Rep. Roz Peterson, R-Lakeville, said at a Monday news conference that a constituent had contacted her after receiving a voter registration form from MNsure, the state-run health insurance exchange, even though the person in question is already registered to vote and does not purchase health insurance through MNsure.
