It wasn't too long ago that Secretary of State was one of the most non-controversial offices in any state. But the last two presidential elections have changed that. Secretary of State candidate Mark Ritchie tells us people from the Ukraine who were in Ohio to observe the last election left disgusted, saying the election was anti-democratic. You might recall Ukrainians have seen election tampering first hand, so they know how to recognize it!

"The discrepency between the exit polls and the final reported ballot were dramatic in many states." says Ritchie. "We have got to get to the bottom of this and I don't think we've gotten there yet."

Ritchie is one of at least two candidates running for the DFL endorsement. The other is Christian Sande.

Listen and discover how passionate Mark Ritchie is about fair elections and why he believes progress towards fair elections can only be made on the state level.
