MINNEAPOLIS — In the Minnesota governor’s race, there have been three different polls in less than a month with vastly different results.

On Sept. 7, a KSTP survey by Survey USA showed that Chief Executive Tim Walz challenged Republican challenger Dr. Scott Jensen led by 18 points.

Meanwhile, the battle for the legislature is on with all 201 seats up for grabs.

During the previous session, lawmakers failed to compromise on $1,500 “Walz checks,” an end to Social Security taxes, and cuts in income and property taxes.

The Minnesota Senate currently has 34 Republicans, 31 DFLs and two Independents.
