Daily Digest: The Democrats’ turn — Good morning, and happy Monday. The Democratic National Convention begins today in Philadelphia, and unlike the Republicans in Cleveland, several Minnesotans will speak from the stage. Like the Republicans, most of the Minnesota delegates will not support the person who will claim the nomination.

Daily Digest: Trump accepts nomination — Good morning, and welcome to Friday. It was a historic night in Cleveland as Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination for president. His speech was the capstone to an improbable political rise that he hopes to top once more by winning in November.

Daily Digest: Cruz rattles the convention — Good morning, and welcome to a hot Thursday in Minnesota. It's the last day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks tonight. Last night his running mate made the case for the ticket, but was overshadowed by another speaker. Let's start the Digest there. 1.

Daily Digest: Day three of the GOP convention — Good morning, we've made it to Wednesday already. It was another big night in Cleveland at the Republican Convention, with Donald Trump officially winning the party's nomination. Day three begins today, and V.P. nominee Mike Pence will speak tonight. So once again let's go to Cleveland for the Digest. 1.

Daily Digest: First night in the books — Good morning, and welcome to Tuesday. The Republican National Convention still leads the political news. Let's take a look at what happened on the first day as we go to the Digest. 1. Most of the speakers on the convention's first night painted a bleak picture of America, beset by law-breaking immigrants, police-hating urban outlaws and a government willfully ignoring threats from terrorists and other enemies abroad.

Daily Digest: Convention time — Good morning, and welcome to Monday and the start of a new work week. It's a big day in Cleveland, where the Republican National Convention begins. And Hillary Clinton is scheduled to speak in Minneapolis late this afternoon. We'll have live coverage on the radio each night of the convention starting at 7 p.m.

Daily Digest: Countdown to Independence Day — Good morning, and happy Friday. The best Fridays always come before a three day holiday weekend, don't they? Here's the Digest. 1. Today marks the one-year anniversary of the state's medical cannabis program. Minnesota lawmakers approved the sale of medical cannabis in pill, oil or liquid form in 2014.

Daily Digest: Question on the ballot — Good morning and welcome to Thursday, the last day of June. The year seems to be going fast. Here's the Digest. 1. Remember a few years ago when the measures to ban same-sex marriage and require an ID to vote were on the ballot, and the campaigns were well organized and funded on both sides of the issues?

Daily Digest: Dayton’s choice — Good morning, and welcome to Wednesday. Tuesday was another busy news day, so let's go right to the Digest. 1. Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Anne McKeig to fill a vacancy on the Minnesota Supreme Court. McKeig is the first American Indian to serve on the court and her pick means women will make up the majority of justices.

Daily Digest: Dayton heads out — Good morning, and happy Tuesday. Here's the Digest: 1. Gov. Mark Dayton leaves for a trip to Croatia today and won't be back until Sunday. That would seem to put a special legislative session out of reach, since Dayton said earlier that if there were no agreement by the end of June there would probably be no session.
