Sample script: Hi, I’m (say your name) from (say from where you’re calling). I am one of the many grassroots activists that stands opposed to Donald Trump’s spiteful, mean-spirited agenda. I am deeply concerned about Trump’s nominee for Supreme Court. Democrats cannot allow him to shape this country’s policy for the next few decades. Can I count on you to publicly oppose and filibuster Neil Gorsuch?
Please thank them for their opposition to DeVos and ask them to show this same resistance to Trump’s other nominees:
Sample script: Hi, I’m (say your name) from (say from where you’re calling). I am one of many voters in Minnesota opposed to Donald Trump’s spiteful, mean-spirited agenda. I want to thank Sen. Franken and Klobuchar for their opposition to Betsy DeVos and I hope that they will fight just as hard against Jeff Sessions, Tom Price, and Steven Mnuchin. Thank you.
Thanks for visiting our site. Senate District 48 DFL includes Southern Minnetonka and the majority of Eden Prairie. We bring together two vibrant communities with a diverse population. We believe it’s a great area to live and raise a family.

Wellstone said, “As free citizens in a political democracy we have a responsibility to be interested and involved in the affairs of the human community.” If you’re interested in learning more about what we believe and are doing, please visit our site often. If you’d like to get involved in moving our communities, state and country forward to a progressive future, please contact us. There are lots of ways you can get involved. Hope to see you soon!

Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Laurie Pryor
The StarTribune Editorial Board has endorsed Laurie Pryor for the HD48A seat, posting the following on their website November 1, 2016:
When state Rep. Yvonne Selcer unexpectedly announced in April that she would not seek a third term in her Minnetonka-Eden Prairie district, Laurie Pryor realized that she was well-suited to run in her stead. As a retired communications and management consultant and 27-year resident of the district, Pryor is well-versed in state and local issues. As a DFL activist, she had already doorknocked the district many times.
We share Pryor’s self-assessment. She’s a strong candidate who deserves election over Republican Mary Shapiro, who recently retired after 35 years teaching in the Minneapolis Public Schools.
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Steve Cwodzinski
The StarTribune has endorsed Steve Cwodzinski for the SD48 seat in an endorsement appearing on their website October 31, 2016, and in print November 1, 2016:
Senate GOP Minority Leader David Hann is in the toughest re-election fight of his 14-year legislative career for two good reasons. One: Hann’s positions on issues — particularly on Southwest light rail — are out of sync with those of many residents in his Eden Prairie district. And two: He has an uncommonly appealing opponent in DFLer Steve Cwodzinski.
Our nod goes to challenger Cwodzinski, a recently retired government teacher at Eden Prairie High School. Hann’s dedication to public service and his willingness to shoulder leadership responsibilities for his caucus in the past four years are admirable. But Eden Prairie would be well-served by the passion for public problem-solving that Cwodzinski would bring to the Legislature.
Cwodzinski reminded us of another educator who took on an entrenched Republican incumbent. Like the late U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, Cwodzinski, 58, exudes infectious enthusiasm for democracy and optimism about its potential to make lives better. (more…)
