This week on Politics Friday Mike Mulcahy talks with economist Louis Johnston about inflation and other economic issues that will have an impact on the upcoming election. He’ll also be joined by attorney Carol Moss to talk about President Biden’s recently announced federal pardons for simple marijuana possession, the status of Minnesota’s marijuana laws and how it could all affect the election. And MPR News's Mark Zdechlik gives us the rundown on the 2nd Congressional District race between Democratic incumbent Angie Craig and Republican challenger Tyler Kistner.
