Debates get race for Minnesota governor off to a roaring start


August 20, 2018

NISSWA, MINN. – In their first two debates since winning their parties’ nominations, Minnesota’s candidates for governor disagreed at forums Friday morning and Friday night on health care, school vouchers and other issues, but they did so genially and without insults.

U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, the DFL candidate, and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson, who won Tuesday’s Republican primary, set the stage for a fall campaign that reflects their parties’ broad policy differences. The two sparred before an audience in Nisswa and later held their first televised debate Friday night on TPT’s “Almanac.”
