Interviews for The UpTake by Kathryn G. Nelson and Hlee Lee

There are 35 candidates running for Mayor of Minneapolis in the Nov. 5 election, from one who calls himself a pirate to one whose campaign videos have made himself an Internet celebrity (he says so, at any rate). The UpTake invited seven of the leading candidates to participate in our mayoral forum on Oct. 22. The other 28 candidates all were invited to sit down with us for brief video interviews. More than a dozen took us up on our offer; you can view their interviews here.

We asked each candidate to respond to the same three questions:

1) Who are you?
2) How has Ranked Choice Voting influenced your campaign?
3) Why are you running for mayor?
