On Sunday, Team Franken volunteer leaders gathered in St. Paul to plan out how our organization will remain strong going into November – from thinking through the crucial next steps of getting out the vote across Minnesota to sharing best practices on how we’re motivating more people to take action and volunteer.
Yesterday, investment banker Mike McFadden attacked “Senate leaders for focusing on student loan refinancing” and the work being done in the Senate to help lower the cost of college, despite the fact that Minnesotans graduate with some of the highest debt in the country.
“Mr. McFadden is playing election year politics with a very serious issue. Sen. Franken has been on top of terrorist recruitment in Minnesota since taking office. Any accusations to the contrary are patently false and an unscrupulous attempt to deceive Minnesotans.”
Minnesota veterans are expressing their disappointment today over investment banker Mike McFadden and the Minnesota Republican Party’s attempts to deceive Minnesotans about Sen. Al Franken’s record of standing up for Minnesota veterans.
Today, the Franken campaign announced the launch of “Veterans for Al,” a group of Minnesota veterans committed to mobilizing and engaging voters about the hard work Sen. Franken is doing to help improve rural access to VA healthcare, make sure returning veterans can find jobs and ensure veterans have access to the care and benefits they have earned.
