KSTP/SurveyUSA Results - Which Possible Candidates do Voters Support in 2018 Governor's Race

We realize it's been less than three weeks since the 2016 election, but it's never too soon to look ahead to 2018. Minnesota will have a hard-fought governor's race because current governor Mark Dayton is not running for re-election. Our exclusive KSTP/SurveyUSA poll asked voters about 16 possible candidates from both the DFL party and the Republican party.

Jack Jablonski Reflects on Past Five Years Since Life-Changing Spinal Injury in Hockey Game

This December will mark five years since the hockey game that changed Jack Jablonski's life forever. The Benilde-St. Margaret hockey player was checked from behind and crashed into the boards, leaving him paralyzed. Doctors told Jack he would likely never walk or skate again. But time and time again, Jack has proven to them, and the world, that he may defy those odds one day.

Jablonski has used his story and his "Beli3ve in Miracles" Foundation to support breakthroughs in spinal cord injury research and treatment. He is also thriving as a college student at the University of Southern California and an intern with the NHL's Los Angeles Kings.
