Many DFLers have not been paying much attention to the primary this year, thinking this primary is more about Republicans vs. Tea Partiers, with all the fights on the right. And while a lot of DFLers are aware of Matt Entenza’s crazy conceited challenge of our current and great State Auditor Rebecca Otto, we need to be vigilant because every one of our big ticket candidates in CD2, except Gen. Lori Swanson, has a challenger this year.
Next Tuesday, on August 12, 2014, make sure you make it a priority to get to the polls, tell candidates like Matt Entenza and others, that the DFL is an important organization. An organization that is responsible for helping to turn Minnesota’s economic woes around. We are an organization that has made it a priority to invest in education, care for the young, the elderly, and those who are not able to take care of themselves. And, the DFL is not a place to make a power grab, or a place to feed your ego looking for perceived weaknesses for personal gain.
On Tuesday August 12, I will vote for every endorsed candidate, not simply because they are endorsed, but because they are far and away the best candidates, and they deserve my vote. I hope you will vote on Tuesday too, and I hope you will encourage somebody else to vote.
