The final debate between candidates running for Minnesota Senate was held Sunday night in St Paul, Minnesota as DFL incumbent Tina Smith and her GOP challenger Karin Housley made their final pitches to voters.
The MPR debate, moderated by Cathy Wurzer, was held at Fitzgerald’s Theatre in downtown St Paul before a large crowd. Wurzer began the debate by pointing out that never before has Minnesota had two women running against each other for U.S. Senate.
The wage gap was a leading debate topic between the two candidates. Housley said she doesn’t believe in mandates on businesses to provide equal pay, arguing that the Women’s Economic Security Act has actually hurt women.
“Whenever you put women in their own category and don’t make them strong and tell them that, ‘We have to make laws because you aren’t equal to men’—-that’s the problem,” Housley said.
Smith said she supported the Women’s Economic Security Act when she was Lieutenant Governor.
“The idea that half of the population in this state or this country are not able to have the same opportunities and earn the same wages as men, it brings us all down,” Smith argued.
Regarding health care, Housley, who has been campaigning against ACA/Obamacare said the only way to get costs under control is to increase competition. Housley said Minnesota’s health care should not be a “single-payer, government-run socialized medicine.”
Smith said Congress should allow the federal government to negotiate drug prices for Medicare recipients. She noted her early efforts in Washington to fight the ever increasing cost of prescription drugs. She also stated that said she wants minimum wage to be $15 per hour, which is a police Housley opposes.
On the topic of immigration, Housley slammed Smith repeatedly for wanting open borders, which she denied.
While Smith is a fill in candidate who replaced Al Franken, who resigned in disgrace following an accusation of sexual harassment, Housley has secured an endorsement from President Donald Trump.
The winner of Tuesday’s election will serve two years in the Senate, finishing Al Franken’s term.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
