In Minnesota at the state level there is the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Auditor, and Attorney General. Although elected, each needs to work in a non-partisan ways toward improving Minnesota for all the citizens. The DFL elected officials and candidates within this group are each outstanding with proven track records of accomplishments and working in the best interests of Minnesotans.
We have DFL candidate for MN Governor Mark Dayton and running mate Yvonne Prettner (DFL Lieutenant Governor candidate) campaigning for a better Minnesota! As Mark says, we can, and we must do better!
Then 'we are blessed with fair elections and great officials' like Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. An outstanding hard worker and manager, he has improved the use of voter technology.. Ritchie oversaw the epic Coleman/Franken U.S. Senate recount, a role that the MN Supreme Court verified 'was done correctly'.
We also have MN State Auditor Rebecca Otto who cut her own funds by $1 MILLION and gave the money to the legislature to put toward the budget deficit!
And finally we have MN Attorney General Lori Swanson protecting and fighting for our rights. Lori Swanson is the first women to be elected to the office in Minnesota and was one of only four women Attorney Generals out of the 50 United States.Tell your family, friends and neighbors to vote and let them know who you support. Who we elect to office will determines the future of Minnesota. Go Vote!
