It's understood, I had to reach ya. I let the wheel of fortune spin...

The inaugural post-election edition of The Closer will take place today, starting at 1:00 pm and going until 3:00 Central Time. While America chose the status quo on Election Day, Minnesota decided to turn over a proverbial blank check to Little Lord Fauntleroy Governor Mark Dayton. We'll definitely address both areas and try desperately to extract a silver lining.

At 1:15, the official political wonk of The Closer, GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak, will aid in the post mortem. I'll get Matt's insights on where it all went wrong for GOP candidate Mitt Romney and what the party has to do moving forward. Since the balance of power in Congress remains the same (Democrat-controlled Senate; Republican-controlled House), what is the GOP's best option to assist in averting the "fiscal cliff?"

At 2:00, friend of the show (and MN State Senator-elect) Karin Housley will check in via phone. Karin was one of the few bright spots for the Minnesota GOP, as she eked out a 1 point victory (631 votes to be exact) in MN Senate District 39.

So please give us 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.

You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link.

For mobile phone users, there are cool apps available for iphone, Blackberry and Android!

And if you're so inclined, follow along on Twitter at #narn or "Like" our Facebook page.

Until then.....
