    Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) is in a statistical dead heat with her GOP challenger Jason Lewis less than two weeks before Election Day, according to a new poll. A SurveyUSA poll released Wednesday shows Smith leading Lewis, a former congressman whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, by only 1 percent. It found that 43 percent of voters favored Smith compared to 42 percent for Lewis. Another 12 percent said they were undecided, while 3 percent said they would vote for a third party candidate. Smith's lead is well within the poll's 5 percent margin of error.
  • KSTP/SurveyUSA: Smith, Lewis Senate race now a dead heat

    Democratic U.S. Senator Tina Smith is now in a dogfight to keep her Senate seat after her once double-digt lead dwindled to a one-point lead in our latest KSTP/SurveyUSA poll. Smith leads Republican challenger Jason Lewis 43% to 42%, with 12% undecided. Another three percent favor other candidates. In mid-September Smith had a 47% to 36% lead over Lewis. Earlier in October she still maintained a seven-point lead, 44% to 37%. "This Senate race could go either way and it's a bit of a surprise because Tina Smith has had a lot more resources than Jason Lewis," Carleton College political...

    The incumbents in every other congressional district have debated their opponents, with the exception of Rep. Betty McCollum. U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Republican challenger claimed that the first-term congresswoman has repeatedly backed out of forums and debates, making her one of the only incumbents who hasn’t participated in a debate. Republican Lacy Johnson called on Omar to agree to a debate before the Nov. 3 election in a statement issued this week. “Representative Omar’s entire time spent in Congress, in addition to her candidacy, has been plagued with scandal. Recently questions have been raised surrounding her campaign engaging in criminal...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday helped host an online event aimed at encouraging young people to vote that was organized by an activist who said last year that “America deserved 9/11.” The New York Democrat congresswoman, 31, spoke at the beginning of the virtual event, which was streamed on Twitch, and announced an “amazing lineup” of gamers to play “Among Us,” a newly popular video game. Hasan Piker, a vlogger who last year came under fire for saying “America deserved 9/11,” organized the event, which featured popular Twitch streamers along with Ocasio-Cortez and fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who herself has...
  • BREAKING NEWS: Judge dismisses third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin in death of George Floyd but he will still face charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter

    A judge has dismissed the third-degree murder charge against white cop Derek Chauvin over the killing of black man George Floyd after he knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he begged for air and said 'I can't breathe'. Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill granted a motion to dismiss the charge against the former Minneapolis police officer in a ruling Thursday morning. Cahill wrote in a 107-page court ruling that prosecutors did not have probable cause for the charge because there was no evidence Chauvin's actions were 'eminently dangerous' to anyone other than Floyd.

    Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, "Greatness walks amongst us." His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again. With Amy's confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice. When Barrett's Senate...

  • Judge Rules MPD Body Cam Footage Of 2019 George Floyd Arrest Can Be Made Public

    The judge in the George Floyd case is allowing the public to see video of a 2019 incident involving Floyd and Minneapolis police. Judge Peter Cahill said he did not think it would taint a potential jury. Attorney for fired Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane wanted the public to see the video. And the prosecution wanted to prevent it from becoming public. Three body cam videos were released that show different perspectives. All show Floyd with Minneapolis police officers on May 6, 2019. He’s a passenger in an unlicensed stop, and he fails to comply with officers initial requests. “Put...

    WASHINGTON — The election is still 18 days away but Democrats are already drawing battle lines over what a Biden administration ought to look like. Left-wing House members including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Katie Porter, Ayanna Pressley, Raúl Grijalva and candidate Jamaal Bowman along with 39 progressive groups signed a letter, obtained by POLITICO, arguing that no C-suite level corporate executives or corporate lobbyists ought to have Senate-confirmed positions in a Biden administration. “One of the most important lessons of the Trump administration is the need to stop putting corporate officers and lobbyists in charge of our government,” they wrote. “As...

    Yesterday, the Minnesota Senate’s Transportation and Public Safety Committee released its report on this summer’s riots in Minneapolis. The Star Tribune report on this was headlined: ‘Minnesota Senate GOP report blames Gov. Tim Walz, Mayor Jacob Frey for slow riot response‘. The sub-header read: ‘Democratic leaders reject findings, call document fodder for election’, which is curious, because previously both Governor Walz and Mayor Frey had said that the other was to blame.

    wo confirmed cases of coronavirus were traced to campaign events for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Minnesota. Though the former vice president gives speeches in crowdless rooms and hosts socially distanced events, one Minnesotan contracted the virus at a Biden event in Duluth on Sept. 18, according to state health officials. Another who was diagnosed with the virus said they attended a Biden campaign event outside of Minneapolis on Sept. 22. Despite having two coronavirus cases linked to his own events, Biden—whose campaign stopped hosting rallies in June to slow the spread of the coronavirus—kicked off a week of...

Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.” Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have...
