Star Tribune: With Cameras Off, Trump Meets with Bipartisan House Group, Including Dean Phillips, To Discuss Shutdown
Rep. Dean Phillips joined fellow members of Congress on Wednesday in urging President Donald Trump to reopen the entire federal government, using a private meeting to push for an end to the nearly monthlong shutdown.
One of the biggest wins in the last election was the double-digit victory by Dean Phillips over five-term incumbent Erik Paulsen, Esme Murphy reports.
House Democrats unveiled the outline for “H.R. 1” — their first legislative push in the new Congress — aimed at substantial government reforms.
Dean Phillips and Ilhan Omar are both newly-elected Democratic members of Congress. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.
Democratic Congressman-elect Dean Phillips is in Washington this week with the four other new members of Minnesota’s Congressional delegation.
Phillips continues to be a vocal advocate for infrastructure investments, such as the Southwest and Bottineau Light Rail lines in Minnesota’s 3rd District.
