Dean Phillips Announces First “Everyone’s Invited! Issue Forum” with Focus on Getting Special Interest Money Out of Politics
Free Educational Forum to be Held on Monday, August 27th in Edina
A day after Dean Phillips again challenged Congressman Erik Paulsen to join him in signing The Minnesota Way Pledge in a live debate where Congressman Paulsen again refused to do so, Phillips announced plans to host and moderate a free and open-to-the-public issue forum focused on money in politics in Edina on Monday, August 27th.
The educational forum will feature national leaders on campaign finance reform, including Tiffany Muller, President of End Citizens United; U.S. Representative John Sarbanes; and former State Representative Ryan Winkler, who authored the Minnesota DISCLOSE Act.
Here are the event details:
“Everyone’s Invited! Issue Forum” – Money in Politics

Location: Southdale Library, Edina, MN
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Special Guests: Tiffany Muller, U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes, and former State Rep.Ryan Winkler
“Money in politics is corrupting our democracy and is the source of the dysfunction in Congress,” said Phillips. “I don’t take special interest money of any kind, which means I will only be accountable to the people I’m seeking to represent. I hope Congressman Paulsen will join us to listen, learn and discuss this important topic with his constituents.”
