2018 December Public Affairs Breakfast
The Republican Party has dominated Minnesota's politics for much of the state's history. Today's party, though, is very different from the progressive Republican Party that came to power with Harold Stassen in 1938, had its heyday in the middle of the twentieth century and faded into near-obscurity by the 1990s. But from the ideas and ideals of that dynamic political movement sprang modern Minnesota's success story.
Please join us as we hear from co-authors of, "When Republicans were Progressive," former Senator Dave Durenberger and longtime political reporter and award-winning author, Lori Sturdevant. Be sure to join us and get your copy; the book will be available for purchase.
Dave Durenberger is a retired three-term United States Senator and the Retired Chair of the National Institute of Health Policy.
Lori Sturdevant is an editorial writer for the Star Tribune and has written several books on Minnesota History.
