The Theater of Public Policy has brought together two of the biggest movers and shakers in Minnesnowta politics—Brian McClung, former governor Tim Pawlenty’s communications director, and Katharine Tinucci, Mark Dayton’s 2014 campaign manager—to talk shop at the Highland Park Library tonight. As always, the T2P2 presentations combine their penchant for theatricality with the always-important wonky details of local governance, a combination that will be welcome this insane election cycle. 6:30-8 PM.
