2014 election: DFL vs. GOP state budgets
ST. PAUL -- Pay attention to the Minnesota state budget: There will be a test.
The test comes Nov. 4, 2014, the next general election. That is when voters decide whether to retain Democratic control of the House and governor's office, or to give Republicans another chance. (Senate seats are not on the ballot until 2016.)
Signs are that the 2014 vote will be a contest between the Republican budget of the past two years and a newly enacted Democratic budget that ends in 2015.
