The Ed Morrissey Show continues its special Minnesota State Fair editions today, going two hours from 10-noon ET/9-11 CT live from Dan Patch Avenue at the Great Minnesota Get-Together! We have another busy, busy day at the Patriot booth, starting off with Townhall’s new Political Director and a longtime friend of mine, Guy Benson, on hand to talk over the top stories of the day. Doug Wardlow drops by in the first hour to talk about his run for the state House in Minnesota, too.
In the second hour, Joel Demos will appear live to discuss his run for Congress in the 5th CD, challenging Keith Ellison in a David-and-Goliath battle in one of the most liberal districts in the US. We’ll talk about his creative work in campaign ads and the prospects of victory for the Republican Demos in a cycle that may help boost his chances. After, Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto will talk about energy tax hikes and how they will disproportionately harm the Latino community, costing them more jobs in a tough recession.
In between, we’ll also take your calls at 651-289-4488. Be sure to join us either at the fair, on the web, or on the air! If you’re in the Twin Cities, the show will broadcast over AM 1280 The Patriot. If not, we’ll stream it live through Hot Air, with video and chat, on the permanent TEMS page.
