About Us

In The Arena Online is your nonpartisan, 2018 Minnesota voter’s guide. Read where your local and statewide political candidates stand on the issues in their own words.


It gives you the opportunity to read directly from your public officials, completely unfiltered. The only contributors are public officials and candidates.


Browse our homepage or use our new My Candidates search function. Simply type in an address and read directly from public officials and candidates in that area.


No media spin. No fake news. No bots. We only publish the candid beliefs, personal stories and unfiltered explanations from those who actually represent you in the political arena.


Our hope is that, whether or not you agree with what they say, this content will bring you closer to the thinking of leaders who shape policy and provide some much-needed understanding to our national conversation.


Don’t see content from a candidate or official you’d like to hear from? Either let them know about this site, or email us: info@inthearenaonline.com. Better yet, do both!

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena
