DEEPHAVEN, MN – Today, Dean Phillips won reelection in Minnesota’s Third Congressional District by historic proportions. With more than 243,000 votes cast in his favor, Phillips’s win represents the largest vote count ever earned by a candidate for Congress in MN-03.
Dean Phillips released the following statement:
“Tonight, our community chose optimism over fear, conversation over chaos, and decency over division. This is the best job I have ever had, and I am honored to have the opportunity to represent such a civically-engaged district for another two years.
We won this election not by destroying my opponent, but by extending invitations — to everybody. I share with this community a pragmatic head, a progressive heart, and the belief that the United States will not live up to its potential and promise until every American is afforded equal opportunity and equal justice under the law.
As I have for the past two years, I will work with both Democrats AND Republicans to restore Americans’ faith in our government by reducing the corrupting influence of special interest money in politics, increasing transparency and accountability, and ensuring that power is returned to where it belongs – with the American people.”
Phillips refuses all campaign contributions from PACs, federal lobbyists, and other members of Congress. Since first running for Congress in 2018, Dean Phillips has raised over $9 million from more than 150,000 individuals – and counting.
