Here’s your radio lineup for Monday, Nov. 11.
9 a.m. — MPR News with Kerri Miller
Democratic Rep. Angie Craig took office in January of this year, after narrowly defeating Republican incumbent Jason Lewis in the 2018 elections. Her win flipped Minnesota’s 2nd District, which had been solidly red since 2001.
Last month, the Republican National Committee began targeting the congresswoman, with television ads to say she “votes with the radicals” and “wastes taxpayer money” by supporting the impeachment hearings against President Trump. Craig says it’s true that she voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry but that’s just a small portion of what she’s doing in Washington.
During her regular town halls, Craig says she hears more about health care, gun control and how the trade war is impacting farmers. At 9 a.m., Rep. Craig joins MPR News host Kerri Miller for a conversation about what she’s learned during her first year, her policy priorities and your audience questions.
10 a.m. — 1A with Joshua Johnson
