A Minnesota Senate committee has recommended against confirming Lieutenant Governor Carol Molnau in her second state government role - commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The 9-to-7 vote fell along party lines, with DFLers opposing confirmation of the Republican Molnau. Her confirmation now goes to the full Senate. Minnesota Public Radio's Tom Scheck followed the debate this afternoon and is on the line with us now. Tom, why did Molnau run into trouble?
