MN tax breaks, who knows? But here comes the campaign rhetoric.

Democrats and Republicans would both like to give Minnesota a tax cut.

After all, it is election year.

And both sides would like to say that they are doing their part to fight crime and improve the sense of security and trust in high-crime communities.

After all, we are at a moment when the fear of violent crime is high, and marks the two-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd.

Instead, it looks like we’ll have to point the finger and settle for negative campaign rhetoric.

Minnesota politics now enters its next phase: the extended election season. And it’s starting to happen when the state capitol has unfinished business — and there’s no clear answer as to whether or not it will end.

Last week, lawmakers adjourned without finishing work that leaders on both sides had agreed to work on, including tax exemptions and law enforcement investments. And while it’s likely that they’ll be back to get their work done, nothing has been of note this week.

This is particularly disappointing for many lawmakers – and taxpayers – because it was not as if they were debating cutting services. More than $9 billion is being added to the state’s accounts that the state never had before.

Election season already?

There is no doubt that the election season will go on, with campaigns running throughout the summer, starting with social media and shifting to campaign fliers, TV commercials and knocking on doors.

State parties have supported their candidates. Tuesday is the last day to enter the office. Races are just about set.

On Thursday, both Democrats, Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, filed; A few days ago, former State Sen. Scott Jensen and his running mate, former NFL player Matt Birk, filed as Republican-backed tickets.

Every seat in the Rajya Sabha and Senate from the Attorney General to Congress, candidates of other races have also filed or are about to file their papers. Same for candidates for many county, city and school board offices.

For some races, the August 9 primary will determine which candidate will advance to the November 8 general election. For many races, the primary will be formality.

what’s at stake

The scenario is also set: In Minnesota, no one knows which party — if either — will control the agenda, which can range from tax policy to abortion rights, to education spending to environmental regulations.

We’re a purple state, for starters: Statewide, Minnesota has been blue for years, but the Legislature is currently divided, and history and recent polling show that Republicans may benefit from President Joe Biden’s laxity amid economic uncertainty. Is.

We are in that moment once in a decade when every statewide Minnesota elected position, every U.S. House seat, every state legislative seat, and nearly every other county and local seat will be up for election based on geographic boundaries. The process is always the first election after the US Census.
