Protect access to medication abortion

  john —  Roe v. Wade has been overturned by the Supreme Court, and with the fundamental right to an abortion gone, Tina is fighting back right now to protect abortion access any way she can. That’s why Tina introduced the Protecting Access to Medication Abortion Act, which would prot…

Happy Fourth of July!

  john — I hope you are enjoying the long Fourth of July weekend, spending time with family and friends in celebration and reflection on our nation’s history. As I reflect on that history, I’m reminded of how far we’ve come and the people who got us to where we are today. We are indeb…

Abortion rights are on the ballot in Minnesota

  john – The Supreme Court might have stripped away the constitutional right to an abortion, but they don’t get the final say. Now that states are the new battleground in the fight for reproductive freedom, the landscape has shifted. Without Roe v. Wade as a safeguard federally, Minne…

Expand the Supreme Court

  john, Our Constitution established the Supreme Court to prevent partisan interests from biasing the justices’ decisions and to serve as a safeguard for our democracy. One thing it doesn’t include? The number of Justices that sit at any given time — that’s determined by Congress, and…

Every single one of my opponents is pushing an anti-choice agenda

The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade

This is the last mid-month deadline of the fundraising quarter.
