Help Keep Minnesota Blue

caucus_graphicOn Tuesday February 4, 2014, we start the march to Election Night in November. Your participation is critical if we want to keep moving our state and country forward. Why? 



Do you like:

  • Keeping your college-aged children on your health insurance policy?
  • Having a pre-existing condition and purchasing health insurance at a reasonable rate?
  • Not having to show identification when you vote?
  • Seeing your LGBT family member or friend able to marry the one they love?

All those things are at risk if we don’t keep a state and federal Democratic majority.

So, join us. Act on your progressive values.

Who:  You and any voter who’ll be 18 years of age on Election Day 2014
What:  Senate District 48 DFL Precinct Caucuses
