With any luck, Minnesota has two months left in its election season. Then again, the state is accustomed to high-profile races that go into overtime.

Several upcoming events on the calendar could help energize campaigns for Minnesota governor and legislative offices. They’ll drive the messages voters will hear from candidates and their allies over the next two months.
