Gaining the support of the working class is vital to me and that is reflected in the endorsements I have sought out. This page will be updated as new groups roll in.
As a proud union member, I’m glad to have our state’s unions standing behind me. I will fight for the rights of our workers and improve their lives and working conditions.
This was my first endorsement and I’m proud to have them. The fact that our teachers were the first to back me is symbolic of one of the key issues bringing me into this race: fully funding our schools. I plan to be a staunch advocate of our teachers and will see them better equipped.

AFSCME Council 5
I’m overjoyed to say that AFSCME council 5 has thrown their amazing support behind our campaign. As a correctional officer and public employee, I’ve been a member of AFSCME local 1539 for 5 years. The largest union of public sector employees is vital to the many services that are essential to our state and too often overlooked.

MAPE has joined the growing league of Labor unions throwing their support behind me. I’m glad to have them and look forward to working alongside them as I have with their members employed at the correctional facility.
It’s with great pleasure that I announce that Conservation Minnesota has decided to back this campaign. I have spent my entire life in the outdoors hunting, fishing, camping, and exploring. I am glad to stand with them as we continue the proud tradition of conservation in Minnesota
Sierra Club North Star Chapter
One of my favorite organizations started by one of my favorite advocates for the outdoors; John Muir. I’m very glad to have them alongside me as Muir stood alongside Roosevelt.
Land Stewardship Action Fund
Though not an official endorsement, I have pledged to work with the Land Stewardship Action Fund towards better land use.
Minnesota Farmer’s Union
Along with the laborers, we are also bringing the farmers back to prominence in the Democratic-Farmer-Laborer party. Minnesota Farmer’s Union has endorsed my campaign and I’m glad to work with them. The rural communities of Minnesota will be forgotten no more.
