Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon and members of a Minnesota delegation will leave Saturday for a trip to Berlin, Germany.
Prettner Solon and others will meet with German renewable energy experts and policymakers to talk about innovations and find ways to bring new ideas home.
“Minnesota and Germany are leaders in the renewable energy sector,” Prettner Solon said. “Trips like these are a superb way to get outside of your own conception of an issue and exchange innovative approaches to problem solving.”
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."
