Fundraiser for State House candidates


SD63 is helping State Rep. Jean Wagenius in holding a fundraiser Representatives Melissa Hortman of 36B and Peter Fischer of 43A. The MNGOP's hopes in statewide races might be looking pretty thin, but they still could take over the State House, and that's enough to gum up state government. Preserve our functionality! RSVP at the Facebook event.


Minneapolis Supports a DFL House Fundraiser

Home of Representative Jean Wagenius
4804 11th Ave S. MAP
Minneapolis, MN 55417

Monday, September 22, 5:30-7:30

Our host committee is inviting you to a very special fundraiser to show Minneapolis' support for the House DFL Caucus. We're going to be raising funds for two Minnesota House DFLers who face tough races this fall:

Representatives Melissa Hortman of Brooklyn Park, Chair of the Energy Committee, and Peter Fischer of Maplewood and White Bear Lake.

These two members have been leaders on progressive causes from energy and the environment, to women's rights and education. We have significant resources in Minneapolis that we should use to support these two candidates that the GOP hopes to defeat this November.

We're lucky to have a strong DFL tradition in Minneapolis and a strong DFL Majority in the House. Let's show how much Minneapolis appreciates our DFL Majority by making sure our suburban friends get the support they need – and deserve!

PLEASE make separate checks out to the Melissa Hortman Campaign Committee and/or Fischer for Representative.

Featured Guest:
Speaker of the House, Paul Thissen

Host Committee:
Mayor Betsy Hodges
City Council President Barbara Johnson
City Council Vice President Elizabeth Glidden
City Council DFL Majority Leader John Quincy
City Council Member Lisa Bender
City Council Member Jacob Frey
City Council Member Linea Palmisano
City Council Member Kevin Reich
Board of Estimate & Taxation President, David Wheeler
School Board Director Richard Mammen
School Board Director Alberto Monserrate
Park Board Commissioner John Erwin
Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin
Hennepin County Commissioner Linda Higgins
Former Mayor R.T. Rybak

We look forward to seeing you there!

If you are not able to attend, but know the importance to Minneapolis of re-electing our DFL majority this year please visit the Hortman and Fischer reelection campaigns at and to make your donations ASAP

Donations from lobbyists and PACs cannot be accepted by Representatives Hortman or Fischer.
