Bush In Minnesota

Texas Governor George W. Bush spoke today at a campaign rally in Minnesota, at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. His appearance today was unusual, considering the state has not voted Republican in a presidential race since 1972. But polls are showing Bush and Democratic candidate Al Gore in a dead heat in Minnesota. We'll hear some of Bush's remarks, and Robert speaks with Doug Grow, a columnist for Minneapolis Star Tribune, about the current state of politics in Minnesota. Two years ago Minnesotans elected a third party candidate, Jesse Ventura, as their governor, and now Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader is making a showing in the polls in Minnesota.
