This week on "At Issue," we ask Republican U.S. Rep. Pete Stauber, who has been considered a potential candidate for Minnesota governor, if he’s planning to run against Gov. Tim Walz.

Meanwhile, Stauber explains what he believes is broken in Washington and the seeming lack of bipartisanship in the nation’s capital. Stauber is one sponsor of the so-called "Justice Act," which is his answer to the "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act" that passed the U.S. House last week.

Starting Monday, Minnesota businesses will see the largest rollback of restrictions since March 2020 when the governor implemented a statewide stay-at-home order. Walz announced on Friday he was easing restrictions — something Republicans say is both exciting and long overdue. GOP lawmakers tell us they want more say in the process going forward.

Our political analysts opine about the governor’s race, which is 20 months away, and the state of (or lack of) bipartisanship.
