It's little more than seven weeks until Election Day, so it's likely to be pretty guest intensive on The Closer over that time period. Today's show, which airs from 1:00 until 3:00 PM Central Time, is no exception.
In the 1:00 hour, I will be joined by former Minnesota legislator (and current member of the University of Minnesota's Board of Regents) Laura Brod. We'll likely discuss many of Minnesota's 2012 state legislative races and the GOP's chances of maintaining majorities in both the House and Senate.
At 2:00, Pete Hegseth, who lost out on the Minnesota GOP endorsement for the 2012 U.S. Senate race, will call in to the program to tout his newly formed Political Action Committee. MNPAC is geared towards supporting specific conservative candidates who face some tough races for MN state House and Senate but could be put over the top with just a few more resources (whether it be financial or volunteer time). I also hope to get Pete's perspective on the disturbing events which occurred in the Middle East this past week. Having served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Pete has seen the tremendous challenges which face the entire region and has ascertained what may be America's best course of action going forward.
So please give me a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss
any of the topics I plan on addressing. You can also text
comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.
