Reflections on Party Politics

It isn’t new for party endorsing conventions to be full of twists and turns. They’re as interesting today as they were fifty years ago, and we were reminded of this last week when we received a donated copy of a book we’ve long had in our collection: The 21st Ballot: A Political Party Struggle in Minnesota. The book, written by David Lebedoff and published in 1969, chronicles a turbulent time within the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party starting in late 1965 and running through the election in 1966. That year, Governor Karl Rolvaag lost to a relatively unknown Republican Party activist named Harold LeVander.

The copy we received contained an inscription from former Governor Rolvaag with an interesting note: “… some day I must write to correct some substantial errors." James Pederson, reviewing the book later that year, wrote: "These flaws, while serious, do not discredit The 21st Ballot as a well-written work ...[capturing] the emotion, excitement, and drama that the political events of 1966 held for most Minnesotans."

Proving that both parties have their struggles, There is No November details Jon Grunseth's candidacy for the office of Governor of Minnesota in 1990. The political intrigue included a tough Republican primary battle between Grunseth and State Auditor Arne Carlson, and two post-primary allegations of improper conduct against Grunseth. They were facing incumbent Governor Rudy Perpich. If you don't know how it turned out, check our Minnesota Governors historical table.

Get ready for election season with these other recently-received resources:

Election Campaign Signs -- A memo from the League of Minnesota Cities that addresses some of the common concerns about campaign sign regulation by Minnesota cities and addresses such issues as size and location of signs and illegal signs.

Political Committee and Political Fund Handbook --  Annual publication from the Campaign Finance Board whose job it's been since 1970 to oversee and publish information about money used to influence state elections.

Should you want to revisit either chapter in history, or prepare for the upcoming election, the books above are available at the Legislative Reference Library. Contact a librarian at 651-296-8338 or refdesk@lrl.leg.mn if you'd like to check one out.
