Minnesotans know that no investment pays a better return than education—and Al is a champion for improved access to good education from pre-kindergarten through college, as well as job training programs to provide workers with the skills they need in the 21st century economy.
Al is fighting to help Minnesota businesses create good jobs for the middle class, bring new industries to our state, and set our nation on a path towards smart budgets and strong growth.
Al believes that every Minnesota family should be able to get the care they need, from a doctor they trust, at a price they can afford. Health reform was an important first step—but there’s still more work to do to bring Minnesota’s tradition of quality, affordable care to the rest of the country.
As Minnesota’s representative on the Senate’s energy committee, Al knows that clean energy and energy efficiency technologies provide enormous opportunity for economic growth and good jobs in Minnesota.
Al has always been personally moved by the service and sacrifice of our armed forces, and he’s fighting to ensure that the promises made to Minnesota veterans are kept.
Minnesota has always led the country in promoting equality for all citizens, from Hubert Humphrey’s fight to end school segregation and lynching to today’s fights for LGBT rights. Al is proud to continue that tradition.
Minnesota farmers have always fed the world. Now Al is committed to helping them power our nation’s future—and unlocking a new wave of prosperity for rural Minnesota.
Minnesota seniors who rely on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security can always count on Al to fight to protect these programs—for today and for the future.
Al has become one of the Senate’s foremost champions for consumers, leading the fight to keep cable, Internet, and cell phone rates low; preserve the free flow of information in America; and oppose corporate actions that would threaten our privacy, our anti-trust laws, or our democracy.
