StarTribune endorses Dean Phillips for another term in Congress

10/13: The Editorial Board believes Phillips is the stronger of the two candidates and a better fit for the increasingly diverse Third District. His commitment to bipartisanship and a common-sense approach that balances values and pocketbook will continue to benefit Minnesotans in a second term.

End Citizens United

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.

Health Care

High quality, affordable health care is paramount—especially now during the coronavirus pandemic. No one should have to choose between seeing a doctor or seeing food on their table.

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.

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. That’s why I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association – the largest organization representing law enforcement professionals in our community. 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.

Seniors paid into a system their entire lives. They lived up to their promise, and now we must honor ours. That’s why I work on both sides of the aisle to ensure our seniors can count on a secure retirement, including Social Security and Medicare.

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.
