Yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama, Governor Mark Dayton and Al spoke to more than 2,000 people at Patrick Henry High School. They all emphasized how important it is to get out the vote, especially in our own communities. “No one is working harder for Minnesota families than Senator Al Franken and Governor Mark Dayton.”
“If Minnesotans in 2009 were expecting Al Franken to arrive in Washington, D.C., as a bombastic elected official wanting to turn the U.S. Senate into a comedy hall, they were clearly mistaken. Instead, Sen. Al Franken became a low-key, out-of-the-limelight senator who quietly went about his business of serving Minnesota.”
On Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren joined Team Franken for a series of stops on the campaign trail, starting in Northfield for a grassroots rally and ending in Hopkins for a canvass kickoff. As you’ll see, it was a pretty inspiring day.
This Tuesday, October 21, First Lady Michelle Obama will headline a grassroots GOTV event in support of Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Mark Dayton at Patrick Henry High School in North Minneapolis. Doors will open at 2PM, and tickets are required for entry.
Clarice, a phone bank volunteer in St. Paul, got the call back in April to get involved with Team Franken. She jumped in right away.
“I was waiting for the call – I wasn’t a hard sell at all! This has been such an incredible experience — the energy in the field office is contagious, and I always leave with a positive feeling. I’m really proud of the fact that I have been able to do this.”
