MN DNC Delegates Clean Up!
The RNC calls it "political posturing...."
Democrats call it "citizenship."
While in New Orleans for the spring DNC meeting… Groups of Democratic delegates including Minnesota's delegates Nancy Larson, Rick Stafford, Ken Foxworth, and Jackie Stevens will clean up lawns and clean out, stabilize and demolish homes in disrepair. Some will distribute clothing and other necessities to victims and pack groceries for the needy.
Keep in mind, these Democratic delegates are the cream atop the Democratic jar. National officers and their staff. National Committeemen and Committeewomen. Elected officials from across the nation. The 'elite,' if you will. Making us proud, and helping our nation heal. Call it Reason I'm A Democrat Number…well, I've lost count. But it's a big one.
