Smith bests Housley in special U.S. Senate race in Minnesota

Reader's View: Smith has our backs
In contrast to the News Tribune's Oct. 24 endorsement editorial, "Housley offers a bit of balance," it's Sen. Tina Smith who we need in Washington. She works for the people of Minnesota — all people, from every corner of the state. Smith has worked across the aisle since day...

Reader's View: Words matter, including Housley's
In its endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Karin Housley (Our View/Endorsement: "Housley offers a bit of balance," Oct. 25), the News Tribune referred to controversy surrounding a social media post by the candidate in which she compared Michelle Obama to a chimpanzee. The newspaper's...

Reader's View: Housley plug not 'Minnesota nice'
I was disheartened to read the News Tribune's endorsement of Karin Housley for U.S. Senate (Our View/Endorsement: "Housley offers a bit of balance," Oct. 25). It seems to me Housley's comments regarding Michelle Obama should disqualify her from representing our state. Most Minnesotans...

Reader's View: Name-calling is weak, lazy
I found it unbelievable that the News Tribune would endorse Karin Housley for U.S. Senate when Housley compared first lady Michelle Obama to a chimpanzee, a racist comment (Our View/Endorsement: "Housley offers a bit of balance," Oct. 25). Housley also fat-shamed Democratic presidential...

Reader's View: Paper misses with Housley endorsement
As a state senator, Karin Housley made a big to-do about senior care. But there was no teeth in the bill, and she seemed to side with lobbyists for the nursing home industry when the toothless bill passed. One would think Housley, with roots in Stillwater, Minn., would be in tune...

Reader's View: No more pro-Trump Republicans in Senate
As a voter in Sen. Karin Housley's current Minnesota Senate District 39, I think we need to set the record straight on her voting record. This is in response to the Sept. 15 story, "Battle lines drawn in Smith-Housley Senate race."
