Does Radinovich loss mark end of Democratic dominance in the 8th?
Once upon a time—and not so long ago—the Democratic party largely dictated politics in the 8th Congressional District. Consider that...

Reader Opinion: An easy choice in the 8th
Joe Radinovich will have my vote on Nov. 6. He demonstrates the courage, integrity, wisdom and understanding of the issues facing the citizens of the 8th District. He doesn't give canned responses to questions. He has studied the needs of the district and passionately describes the...

Reader Opinion: Radinovich in the 8th
If you want an independent voice in Washington, then vote for Joe Radinovich. He is not beholding to anyone, other than to the people of the 8th District. Joe is a fourth generation Brainerd lakes resident and will never vote to cut Social Security or Medicare. He believes affordable...

Minnesota’s big races — and there are a lot of them — near the finish line. Here’s a refresher on their top issues

Reader Opinion: Vote Radinovich
Have you ever in your lifetime seen a more hateful and dirty campaign than the one we're witnessing this year? A local case in point is the smear campaign going on against our neighbor Joe Radinovich, candidate for Congress. Millions of dollars are being spent by wealthy millionaires...

Reader Opinion: Radinovich is a stand up guy
Politics seems to have gotten nastier than ever. Disagreements become personal, our leaders engage in behavior most of us would not tolerate from our children. In my experience with Joe Radinovich he has always been a decent, caring person who is willing to make a stand, even when...

Reader Opinion: Be ready to vote
Tim Walz wants Minnesota to be a sanctuary state. Keith Ellison, ditto. Tina Smith, ditto. Amy Klobuchar, ditto. Joe Radinovich, ditto. With these DFL people in office, we could just tell the 7,000-plus "caravan" coming from Mexico to keep coming (with thousands more to follow), Minnesota...

Reader Opinion: Moment of truth

Reader Opinion: Radinovich is the only choice
If you want a candidate who will support working families, Joe Radinovich is the only choice. A 4th generation Cuyuna Ranger, he knows the value of a good job, affordable health care, and the opportunity for a solid education. Furthermore, he'll protect Social Security and Medicare....
