Earlier, The UpTake invited seven of the leading candidates to take part in a debate that was held on Oct. 23. In addition, we asked them to sit down for an informal conversation in order that voters might see them, up close and personal. Six agreed to do so (Candidate Don Samuels did not participate). Here is The UpTake’s interview with Betsy Hodges, one of the DFLers in the race.
