On Friday, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and leaders of all four legislative caucus leaders will have their first meeting since October.
The meeting will be Friday afternoon in the governor's state capitol office.
They'll have a lot to talk about -- a judge just decided that part of Pawlenty's solo budget move overstepped his authority, the state is facing another budget deficit and the next legislative session starts in less than a month.
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."
