Back in country school days it was “readin’,” “ritin” and “rithmetic.” Now for this Democratic Party in Minnesota it’s the right, the responsibility and, hopefully, the reasonable.
Minnesota Democrats (DFL) gained the right to govern as of Nov. 6, 2012. Minnesota votes granted that. We already had the governorship. We expected to regain the state Senate and, by some pleasant surprise, the state House of Representatives went Democratic.
It was a clear sweep, presenting opportunity and challenge.
