Minnesota Politicians and their run for the White House
Produced by Ahndi Fridell

Forty-four men have served as President of the United States, though none hail from Minnesota. In this MinneCulture documentary, KFAI legacy producer Ahndi Fridell profiles six local politicians who left a mark on national history in their run for the White House: Ignatius Donnelly, Floyd Olson, Harold Stassen, Hubert Humphrey, Eugene McCarthy and Walter Mondale.

Tune in to a special pre-election day broadcast on the KFAI Evening News from 6-7pm on Monday, November 2nd. Hosts Allison Herrera and Art Hughes will look at the impact of Ranked Choice Voting on Minneapolis elections and talk to Pioneer Press reporter Doug Belden about St. Paul School Board Races.
