Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Minnesota’s two major political parties jumpstarted the 2022 election year season Tuesday by holding their traditional precinct caucuses.

The Democratic party decided to conduct most of its meetings under a remote format but the Republicans held in-person gatherings.

With more than 90-percent of the results of a GOP preference poll for the governor's race reported late Tuesday night, former state Sen. Scott Jensen had a big lead over the other hopefuls.
