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."
State Auditor Rebecca Otto, whose office audits 59 of 87 Minnesota counties among other responsibilities, said a technical glitch in the state government finance bill that passed in the final hours of the legislative session could leave those counties without any auditing.
