Campaign Finance

The Citizens United decision has been a disaster for our country. Corporate special interests have unprecedented influence in Washington, and the voices of regular people have been muted. It’s time to End Citizens United.

Women’s Health & Freedoms

Women deserve equal pay for equal work, sensible paid leave policies, access to comprehensive healthcare, and reproductive freedom.

Gun Sense

Gun violence in our country is an epidemic, and it will take more than thoughts and prayers to save lives. We need new representation in Congress that will take on the NRA and pass common sense gun violence prevention legislation.


Smart public policy rewards the worker. That’s why I’m proud to stand with our labor unions in their pursuit of fair wages, a safe work environment, and equitable treatment under the law.


Small businesses are the beating heart of our communities. I’m passionate about putting my third years of experience creating, leading, and growing businesses to work—driving economic growth and paving the path to prosperity for all Americans.

When it comes to our climate, our air and water, and our natural spaces, we’re living in an era of great opportunity—and great consequence. I’m committed to ensuring we preserve clean water and a healthy planet for future generations.

Public Safety

As a Gold Star Son, I respect those who put on a uniform in service, who risk their lives to keep others safe, and who protect every American’s rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I engage regularly with our public safety officials and am proud that many of our Third District police departments are leading the way on innovations that build trust and understanding between officers and the communities they serve.

Democratic Party

I am a proud Democrat, and one who is committed to bringing to Washington the values that our DFL party holds dear; that regardless of background all people deserve fair wages, affordable health care and education, and a life of safety and dignity for ourselves and for our families.
