Today's hot State Fair topics: Hurricane Harvey, Politico's insult, world-class state, DNA privacy and the "wedge," and more

The Minnesota State Fair returns to the Fairgrounds, and so does Hot Air at the Fair! All this week, local Salem Radio affiliate AM 1280 The Patriot will have me on the air from 8-10 am CT, talking both national and local politics. We also will simulcast the show through Facebook Live.

Today’s show at the Great Minnesota Get-Together features:

All this and much, much more!

Call in to join us at 651-289-4488! Be sure to listen on The Patriot’s on-line stream if you’re outside the broadcast area. We’ll also stream Facebook Live to present the show from the booth (although with booth audio rather than network audio), and will embed each hour in this post. (If it’s muted, right-click the video and choose Unmute.) Join the fun!
