Minnesota’s Progressive Republican Tradition Explored on Public TV
Well, I guess someone thought it important to talk about the moderate wing of the GOP. I applaud it, even if it was put forward by liberals. Any port in the storm, as they say…
Anyway, Twin Cities Public Television has produced a documentary in conjunction with Growth and Justice a non-partisan think tank (in reality, it leans left). Here is what they say:
Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) will rebroadcast â€œMinnesotaâ€™s Progressive Republicansâ€ Sunday, Jan. 4 at 6 p.m. on TPT-Channel 17 on most broadcast television, satellite and cable systems, and channel 13 on Comcast in Minneapolis.
Co-produced with Growth & Justice, the documentary explores the strong progressive Republican tradition that has contributed to stateâ€™s success. It features speeches made by Govs. Quie and Carlson and U.S. Rep. Jim Ramstad at a symposium hosted in September by Growth & Justice.
Of course, there are already conservative wags that are putting this down because it’s being produced by liberals. I may not agree everything Growth and Justice puts forth, but if they are speaking the truth, then I will listen.
Here is a clip of the documentary:
If you live in Minnesota, try to catch it.
