A Minnesota state lawmaker who is running for re-election is apologizing after he yanked a microphone from the hand of his opponent during a televised legislative forum.

Rep. Duane Quam grabbed the microphone from Democratic-Farmer-Labor party challenger Jamie Mahlberg during a Tuesday night debate at Rochester Public Library. The Rochester Post-Bulletin reports that Quam took the microphone to rebut a point Mahlberg made about education funding.
