Winter/Spring 2019

May 14th:The Republican Party has dominated Minnesota’s politics for much of the state's history. Today's party, though, is very different from
the progressive Republican Party that came to power with Harold
Stassen in 1938, had its heyday in the middle of the twentieth
century, and faded into near-obscurity by the 1990s. But from the
ideas and ideals of that dynamic political movement sprang modern
Minnesota's success story. Minnesota Republicans held that working
across the aisle was a mark of strength, not of weakness or disloyalty.

Senator Dave Durenberger grew up in and helped build that party.
He will explain how Minnesota's progressive Republicans earned
voters' trust and delivered on their promises—and how progressive
ideas fell out of favor when an increasingly anti-government, antitax
national party shifted Minnesota Republican thinking to the right.
In the ensuing partisan realignment, both the Republican and the
Democratic parties have lost public trust. With eloquence and
insight, Durenberger argues that the principles and practices of
progressive Republicanism are a fitting remedy for what ails
American democracy today
