The candidates for Congress in Minnesota’s 7th and 8th districts debated the major issues on this week’s Politics Friday with host Mike Mulcahy.
They’re Minnesota’s two largest districts in land area. The 7th District covers a huge swath of western Minnesota, from the Canadian border south nearly to Iowa.
The 8th District is another huge district in northern Minnesota running from the Canadian border to the counties just north of the Twin Cities.
In the first part of the hour we heard from the 8th District candidates: Republican incumbent Rep. Pete Stauber and his challenger, DFLer Quinn Nystrom.
In the second half, we heard from the 7th District candidates: incumbent DFL Rep. Collin Peterson and his challenger, Republican Michelle Fischbach.
