Election season continues and so does campaigning. This week WTIP was visited by Paula Overby, the Green Party endorsed candidate.
The transgender Green Party candidate is challenging incumbent Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat, and state Rep. Jim Newberger, a Republican from Becker, Minnesota.

Overby is from Eagan, Minnesota. She is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a degree in psychology and a second major in computer science. As a full time working mother of three, she had a successful career as a systems analyst with experience in quality assurance, data analysis and process design.

Overby is author of The Transgender Myth: Through the Gender Looking Glass.

In this interview, WTIP’s Rhonda Silence learns more about Paula, about the Green Party platform and the challenges faced by candidates not affiliated with either of the two major political parties.
