As half of the twin bill at Drinking Liberally on the 28th, nine-term Minnesota House member Ron Erhardt came and spoke to an enthusiastic crowd about the influence of the Christian Right in the modern Republican Party, the override of Pawlenty veto of the tax increase in 2008, and his support for the Kevin Staunton, the DFLer who is trying to unseat Rep. Erhardt’s replacement, Keith Downey.
Rep. Erhardt was informative and funny. Here’s just part of what he had to say. (There will be video of our other guest, Rep. Keith Ellison, in coming days.)
Thanks to our camera man for the evening, Ahmed Tharwat , producer of Bel Ahdan, a television program about the Muslim experience in Minnesota, shown on the "Minnesota Channel" on TPT on Saturday nights.
