VIDEO: Rep. Mary Sawatzky Debates Dave Baker In Minnesota Swing District

Rep. Mary Sawatzky (DFL) v Dave Baker (R) – 17B Willmar
This seat has flipped back and forth between Republicans and Democrats the last three elections. Both parties say it is crucial to controlling the House this year. Rep. Mary Sawatzky (DFL) is one of the few DFLers who voted against legalizing same-sex marriage. Her district voted for the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in 2012, which has made it hard for social conservatives to attack her. Her Republican opponent, David Baker, is a businessman.

Sawatsky and Baker debated on Oct. 9 at the Pioneer Public TV studios in Appleton.
