Terri Bonoff ran as a moderate and as a DFLer. She won a special election in a district that leans heavily Republican. Listen as she tells Peter why she was successful.

Is this an indication of how the 2006 elections will go? Maybe, maybe not. Republicans were able to hang on to a central Minnesota Senate seat in a three way race. Listen as Peter says what can be learned from these two different races.

Terri Bonoff won because the moderate republicans in Minnetonka - who don't have much time for creationism supporting candidates who want to make abortion a criminal offense. Mary Tambornino, a moderate republican who used to serve on the Hennepin County board publicly endorsed Bonoff on Lloydletta's Nooz the day before the election.

I've linked to this post, and commented about the interview on Lloydletta's Nooz.

Finally. Terri Bonoff is doing what desperately needs to be done in politics. Acknowledging that most people share common values and goals and keeping the major device issues out of the conversation. We need more candidates like her.

By the way, this was one of your best podcasts yet. Thank you.

I now live in Ohio but was a Minnesota resident for many years and have retained many ties to that great state. I am trying to keep myself informed by linking to MN blogs but to my dismay Technorati listed mostly conservative blogs in my intial search.

It was great to discover your blog.
We have started in NE Ohio a forum of interviews with candidates for the governor race. If you feel like take a look follow this link American Pink collar to my personal blog.

I'll be back.
