Farmfest, the annual gathering of agriculture interests, will feature a full lineup of candidate forums this year. The forums will include candidates for Minnesota governor, a special forum for Minnesota’s First Congressional District, and a congressional candidate forum for Minnesota’s Second, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Congressional districts.

“This is a very intriguing lineup of candidate forums, and the forums are quite timely, considering Minnesota’s statewide primary and special elections in the First Congressional District are being held the following week,” according to Kent Thiesse, Farmfest forum coordinator.
