The Jacob Wetterling abduction

In 1989, 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling was abducted along a rural road in St. Joseph, Minn. In 2016, Danny Heinrich led authorities to the place where he buried Wetterling.

It's an election year, so more than machinery was on hand at this summer's Farmfest. Plenty of politicians were there, too, at the Gilfillan Estate near Morgan. The event will include a variety of candidates and government officials participated in a candidate forum.
On the eve of the convention in Duluth, DFL-ers are looking forward to officially endorsing Patty Wetterling to run against U.S. Rep. Mark Kennedy. The state party chair also talks about the impact of the stalemated legislative session on upcoming elections.
Patty Wetterling is thinking about running for Congress this fall to oust Republican Mark Kennedy. Wetterling is nationally known for the way she responded to the 1989 abduction of her son Jacob who's still missing. She helped create the Jacob Wetterling Foundation to push child safety issues at the state capitol, and in Washington, D.C. The DFL party has been recruiting her for the past couple of weeks to run in the Sixth Congressional District which stretches from the suburbs of the Twin Cities, up to St. Cloud. If she does decide to run, she will have to secure the DFL endorsement before a possible matchup against Kennedy. At least one other DFLer, Ted Thompson, has already announced his intention to get the DFL endorsement. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Patty Wetterling.
