I am hearing from people from all over the district that they a need a leader who will stand up for the needs of our district. I look forward to taking my track record of success championing progressive issues to Washington. 

I will go to Congress and represent the people of this district who are feeling left behind by the current Administration. As Speaker of the Minnesota House, I fought Governor Pawlenty and won. Pawlenty tried to take away healthcare from vulnerable people and balance the budget on the backs of middle class and seniors. I will take this fight to Congress as this Administration attempts to take health care away from those with pre-existing conditions, demonizes immigrants and refugees, sides with the NRA over keeping our children safe, and threatens our public lands and the environment.
