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."
A state judicial panel has recommended Department of Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson and three others to Gov. Mark Dayton as he looks to fill two vacancies on the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
