Vice President Mike Pence says he’ll look into why Minnesota was denied federal assistance after the unrest following the death of George Floyd. Gov. Tim Walz requested support to help the Twin Cities rebuild after looting, arson and other rioting destroyed businesses in early June.

 In an extended one-on-one interview with Tom Hauser, Pence also discusses the Supreme Court vacancy and the presidential campaign.


The Trump and Pence campaign — along with the Joe Biden campaign — continue to spend massive amounts of money on ads here in Minnesota. Some of the claims in the ads are true, others are misleading or false. We put both campaigns’ claims to the Truth Test.

 Meanwhile, our political analysts weigh in on the death of a candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s 2nd District. The death of Adam Weeks, the Legal Marijuana Now Party nominee, was challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Angie Craig (DFL). Now, the race for Craig’s seat, which includes Republican Tyler Kistner, will be pushed out to February.
