This week’s episode of the Aaron Rupar Show features J. Patrick Coolican, editor in chief of the Minnesota Reformer, sharing his insights about Minnesota politics and the blizzard of progressive legislation the state’s new Democratic trifecta is currently shepherding into law. We also discuss the pitiful condition of the Minnesota GOP, which hasn’t won a statewide election in nearly 20 years, and why the party has such a hard time recruiting electable candidates.
Did you know I began my career in journalism covering Minnesota politics a decade ago, back when Republicans controlled the legislature and Democrats were seemingly in disarray? We get into that too.
It was a fun conversation, so I hope you’ll check it out. Listen to the audio at the top of the post (and also on whatever platform you get your podcasts), or watch us below via my YouTube page.
