Politics on a stick

Posted by: Michael Brodkorb under Minnesota politiicans, Politics, State fair Updated: August 30, 2014 - 11:35 PM

Fellow Star Tribune blogger Mark Andrew has written a must-read post about politics at the Minnesota State Fair. While I disagree with some of his conclusions, the Minnesota State Fair and politics go together like All-You-Can-Drink Milk and Sweet Martha's chocolate chip cookies.

For candidates running for office this year, there is no better opportunity to poll the electorate and talk with Minnesota voters than at the state fair. It's a must for candidates - that is why some are willing to fight to be seen and heard.

There are just two more days of the Minnesota State Fair and I'll be making another stop at the Great Minnesota Get-Together. For voters and candidates, there is still plenty of time to discuss issues and more importantly, eat some chocolate desert salami and Jell-O Salad Ice Cream.

How perfectly Minnesotan.
