Former Minnesota Governor Dies

Dan Olsen of Minnesota Public Radio reports from St. Paul on the life and political career of Harold Stassen. The former Republican Governor, who died Sunday, ran for president nine times but never won national office. Although Stassen was considered one of the country's most promising politicians when he was first elected Governor of Minnesota, his name gradually became associated with electoral futility.
