The biofuels issue sparked brisk debate between U-S House candidates during a Tuesday forum on Farmfest’s first day.  Second District Democratic Congresswoman Angie Craig:

“I’m the first member of Congress to ever, in the history of this Congress, pass a bill that would allow for year-round sales of E-15.”

Republican challenger Tyler Kistner fired back:

“Wasn’t it Trump that passed E-15 year ’round?  And then it was the courts that got rid of it.   And yet, we are trying to push a bill with a Democratic-controlled Congress and White House, and they can’t even get anything passed.”

The U-S House race in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District — the Twin Cities southeast suburbs and portions of southeast and south-central Minnesota — is considered one of the tightest in the nation.
