Minnesota will have a new Governor, don't you want to know who it will be? The UpTake records, MinnPost Reports.  

In the heat of the 2010 gubernatorial race in Minnesota we hope to highlight the race with the coverage of two of the leading new media organizations in the State of Minnesota. MinnPost and The UpTake.

With the cutback of political reporters at every major newspaper in the state, the need for more political coverage is clear, we will have a new Governor come November, and the citizens of Minnesota need to know as much as they can about everyone in the race.  This means we need more, more stories written, more video captured and more questions asked.
We've decided that our communities who rely on our coverage may also share these goals and we are excited to be using to help us crowd-fund this story idea.
