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."
Gov. Mark Dayton on Wednesday said that while he "strongly" believes "black lives matter" and supported the broader cause of activists, he wanted protesters to avoid disrupting the Twin Cities Marathon.
