It's going to be one of those guest intensive shows on The Closer this afternoon. We'll also try to fit in some news of the week within our seemingly short 1:00 until 3:00 Central Time slot.
We'll have two candidates for Congress at the top of each hour. Both MN State Senator John Pederson (on at 1:00) and Tom Emmer (2:00) are vying to represent the GOP in the Sixth Congressional District race, which has been represented by Michele Bachmann (who is not seeking reelection) since 2007.
At 1:30, Christian Contemporary singer Jaci Velasquez will be on for one segment. Jaci will be in Minnesota on Friday, December 6 for a concert at Edinbrook Church in Brooklyn Park. I'll also chat with Jaci about her career, family life, overcoming life's challenges and even a blurb about her cinematic endeavors.
As far as news of the week, there's been a lot of hay made over Education MN's 2013 Teacher of the Year declaring her profession as American democracy's last line of defense against "the tyranny of the 1%." I at least want to share a thought or two on that.
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.
