[anvplayer video=”4930493″ station=”998122″]

Republican state senators in the Minnesota Legislature are using their time outside session to address concerns following George Floyd’s death.

This week on "At Issue," we look at their attempts to get the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the Minneapolis Police Department – and a separate effort to hold Gov. Tim Walz and his administration accountable for the destruction of businesses, the 3rd Precinct building and the Columbus statue on the state Capitol grounds.

We also look at what Minnesotans think about the government’s response during the coronavirus pandemic. While a vast majority support the way Walz has addressed COVID-19, not as many support President Donald Trump’s decisions. Our political analysts break down the numbers and how the pandemic has shaped the election cycle.
