The state session is over. Congress is in work sessions or recess. Trump is still Trumping. Elections are less than six months away.
Let's focus a little on "candidate Wednesday" the statewide governor's races and the DFL state races.
1. Here's a list of Minnesota DFL House candidates.
2. Check out this comparison of MN Governor Candidates. The state convention is *this weekend*! Of course, there's a primary, but next week, we may have a pretty good idea of our next governor.
3. Take a look at this piece from Bloomberg on the tactics Bannon, Trump and Cambridge Analytica used to influence the election.
"The story’s writer—an employee of the conservative website run by Steve Bannon before he took over Donald Trump’s campaign—spent weeks courting activist Bruce Carter to join Trump’s cause. He approached Carter under the guise of interviewing him. The writer eventually dropped the pretense altogether, signing Carter up for a 10-week blitz aimed at convincing black voters in key states to support the Republican real estate mogul, or simply sit out the election. Trump’s narrow path to victory tightened further if Hillary Clinton could attract a Barack Obama-level turnout."
