A Message from Minnesota House candidate
Anita Flowe
I am considering another run for Minnesota House in 2020 and need your help! I am looking for DFLers to come forward now to help me run against Dave Baker and win!

The most prominent part of my campaign will be the long-term investment of campaign funds. That’s right, instead of spending all of our funds on newspaper and radio ads, I plan to invest some to send interested volunteers to high-quality campaign-training schools, such as re:power (formerly known as Wellstone Training). Now is the time to discuss new ideas such as this, as well as planning tried and true activities such as meet-and-greets and door knocking.

Please join us at one of our campaign kick-off meetings to join in our creative power building! We will have chili along with discussion of the details and some time for some creative thinking.

Come to one or both:

Friday, September 13 AND Friday, September 27
6-7:30pm

Thanks for visiting the fair

The Kandiyohi County DFL booth at the county fair hosted a straw poll of presidential candidates. Senator Amy Klobuchar won handily and Vice President Joe Biden came in second. Amber from Willmar won the drawing for a U.S. flag! The booth itself won a purple ribbon as well.
