Dean Phillips Endorsed for Second Term

Third District DFL Party votes by electronic ballot

Excelsior, MN – Today, Congressman Dean Phillips accepted the endorsement of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party in Minnesota’s Third Congressional District after delegates voted remotely by electronic ballot due to the Covid-19 crisis.

“I am honored and humbled to accept the nomination of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party to serve a second term in Congress,” said Phillips. “I take on the responsibility of serving the people during this pandemic with a sense of duty, urgency, and a commitment bringing an optimistic outlook to the challenging recovery ahead.”

“Our campaign in 2020 will look different from our previous effort – without the face-to-face conversations, hand shakes, hugs, and high-fives that I love so much. What will remain is the spirit of inclusion, and my commitment to extend an invitation to every person, regardless of ideology, to join together, repair our divisions, and help our country recover from the human and economic toll of the pandemic.” 

“Our campaign will be a robust and innovative effort of engagement and invitation through phone calls, text messages, digital strategies, and bold creative content to reinforce our key message: Everyone’s Invited.”
