DFL Chairman’s Statement on GOP Endorsing Erik Paulsen

[ST. PAUL, MN] – Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin today released the following statement on Representative Erik Paulsen receiving the GOP endorsement for the Third Congressional District:

“Erik Paulsen is wildly out of step with Minnesotans in the Third Congressional District. He has voted to take away their health care, raise their taxes to benefit the wealthy, and further policies that pollute the environment. And despite mounting pressure, he has refused to hold an in-person town hall for over six years. Talk about lack of accountability.”

 “This November will present Third Congressional District voters with two starkly different choices: a man who votes against their interests and then hides from them, or a man who knows representation begins with listening.”
