Something in Minnesota's 2nd congressional district is causing some excitement — an open seat.

Republican Rep. John Kline is retiring, and Democrats are hoping to flip the seat with their candidate, Angie Craig, a former health care executive. She faces former right-wing radio host Republican Jason Lewis, who has made controversial comments about women and minorities in the past.

Here & Now's Robin Young looks at the race with Mark Zdechlik of Minnesota Public Radio.

Guest
