It's been a contentious, dramatic primary season in Minnesota.  Now we are in the road to election day Tuesday November 6th where the next Governor of Minnesota will be elected.  All year we had been meeting the people running for Governor on KAXE/KBXE and had planned a Governor's forum in Grand Rapids one week after primaries.  Unfortunately we learned neither candidate could make it.  That didn't stop us though, as we gathered our Dig Deep team of conservative Chuck Marohn and liberal Aaron Brown and talked about the questions they want the next MN Governor to contemplate about rural areas.
