Iím excited to announce my campaign for re-election in 2018 and I ask for your support for the DFL endorsement!

My supporters know my record as a consistent progressive leader, a legislator of substance and a hard-working campaigner for my fellow DFLers. We all know 2018 is a critical year for our democracy and the stakes could not be higher. But I choose to be motivated by hope. 2018 is an opportunity to use Trumpís unpopularity and record of disasters to reach new voters seeking a rebirth of decency and a common progressive vision.
We must not be distracted, but rather focus our energy on retaking the Minnesota House, electing two DFL Senators, electing a new DFL Governor, and replacing members of Congress in several key districts.
We can make the difference right here in Minnesota. Together we will build the resistance into a governing majority that stands strong for our progressive values and builds a healthy and just community for all.
Our journey starts at precinct caucuses on Tuesday, February 6 and I ask for your support. Join us!!
