I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Those who speak the truth are heroes, anything less is a lie.

For Whom The Bell Rings

Most of the things Ford Bell believes in reasonated with me...even the way he called an end to his campaign....

I will be supporting my opponent Amy Klobuchar in November, and I ask my supporters to do the same. The differences within our Party are important, but the differences between Mark Kennedy, George Bush and the needs of America are much greater.

I have spent my life in service to my community, my state and my country. I will continue to do so. I believe in what the great American Muhammad Ali once said: “The service you do for others is the rent you pay for the time you spend on earth.”

This campaign may end today, but what we believe in goes on, and we will all continue to cherish and work for our beliefs.

I agree. Both his campaign and his concession made lots of sense. I'm glad he's "going out" as a class act.

I also agreed with many of Mr. Bell's stances.
I hope that this is not the last that we see of Ford Bell. His honest truth and stances have a home in the DFL and I hope that he'll considering running for office, as a DFLer, again.

Thank you Ford!
