The heads of Minnesota's three major political parties joined forces Tuesday to encourage voters to turn out Feb. 4 for caucus night.
The caucuses, which kick off at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, offer Minnesotans a chance to endorse candidates for major offices and shape party platforms. To find your local precinct location, you can either visit the Secretary of State's web page, or the state Democratic and Republican parties. The Independence Party of Minnesota is also offering the option of participating in a virtual caucus online.
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."
