Broadband comes up briefly in DFL Minnesota Gubernatorial discussion

MPR reports on a recent discussion among DFL candidates for governor. The hot topics were mining and the Vikings stadium, but broadband came up…

Rep. Erin Murphy of St. Paul said the national attention Minnesota received for hosting Super Bowl LII Sunday was a “beautiful thing.” But she voted against the legislation that built U.S. Bank Stadium and still believes the public cost was too high.

“There are communities that are still waiting for things like broadband and affordable childcare and affordable and accessible health care. The human needs for me come first and they always will as the state’s governor,” Murphy said.
