For its opening-day visit to the Minnesota State Fair, The Daily Circuit welcomes one current and one former mayor for a wide-ranging conversation about Minnesota — in other words, a trivia contest.

The mayors are R.T. Rybak, now serving his last term as mayor of Minneapolis, and George Latimer, who served as mayor of St. Paul from 1977 to 1989. Kerri will try to stump the mayors with questions about Minnesota geography, history and personalities, and she will give audience members a chance to do the same.
