Politics Friday: Primary preview special

In this special edition of Politics Friday, MPR News political editor Mike Mulcahy previews Tuesday’s primary election in Minnesota. There are a few competitive primaries for seats in Congress — including the 5th District DFL race and the 7th District Republican contest. There are also some interesting legislative primaries in which sitting lawmakers face challenges from within their own parties. But it’s not politics as usual in Minnesota, as early voting numbers have spiked due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mulcahy talks with Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon about the early voting process and what it will mean for counting ballots on primary night. Mulcahy also talks with North News editor Harry Colbert Jr. about what 5th District residents are hearing from the DFL candidates. Political analysts Todd Rapp and Maureen Shaver run down all the interesting races and look ahead to November. Guests: Steve Simon is Minnesota’s Secretary of State. Harry Colbert Jr. is the editor of North News. Maureen Shaver is a lobbyist with Shaver Public Affairs. Todd Rapp is the president and CEO of the public relations firm Rapp Strategies.

Politics Friday: Primary preview special

One Black family's struggle with both racism and a pandemic

The coronavirus has changed almost everything about our way of life. Then came George Floyd’s death, followed by international protests and civil unrest. How do parents cope with the crises that are engulfing the U.S.? For the past few months, Counter Stories co-host Anthony Galloway has recorded his family’s experience of living together in the middle of a global pandemic — from the loneliness of his two children as schools closed, to the financial strain of job losses and the trauma of being Black in America. Galloway talks about the pressure of keeping his family together in these hard economic times, and his concern that the ongoing peaceful protests and civil unrest following George Floyd’s death may have an impact on his children’s mental and emotional state. He spends time with his son Ezra talking about George Floyd’s death, theresulting riots and the role of rioting in American history. Counter Stories would like to thank the Galloway family for making this documentar...

Will telemedicine be the new norm in Minnesota?

Since March, almost every nonemergency medical visit has been conducted through video chats or on the telephone to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Telemedicine or telehealth is not new, but the pandemic has caused health care systems to rapidly pivot to online doctor’s visits. How is it going and is it here to stay? Guests: Joel Beiswenger is the president and CEO of Tri-County Health Care in Wadena, Minn. Dr. Joshua Stein is a child adolescent psychiatrist and the clinical director of the Prairie Care’s Brooklyn Park medical office. Dr. Annie Ideker is a family medicine physician at the HealthPartners Clinic in Arden Hills, Minn., and helped train more than 2,000 clinicians on telemedicine.

More people are heading back to work. So who's watching the kids?

More people are headed back to work in person — but with COVID-19 cases on the rise in Minnesota, there are plenty of health implications. To top it off, many school districts are in the process of deciding how they'll resume instruction in the fall. With more parents back to work, and child care a scarce commodity even before the pandemic, some families are scrambling to figure out who will watch their children if they're not in a classroom full-time. MPR News host Angela Davis talks with two experts about Minnesota’s workers and their children. Guests: Ann McCully is the executive director of Child Care Aware of Minnesota. Rob Grunewald is an economist for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

What's next for Minnesota schools?

Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday announced his nuanced guidelines for how districts should start school in the fall — by reopening classrooms, continuing distance learning or implementing a combination of the two — all based on COVID-19 case data.
