Minnesota Campaigns

NPR's David Welna reports that Minnesotans in the Saint Paul area are being treated to one of the more surprising campaigns this election season. Three candidates are vying for the district's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives -- a democrat, a republican and a member of the Independence party founded by Jesse Ventura. Any of the three could come away with the victory, and for the fledgling Independence party, a win might silence critics that claim the party exists in name only.
