Tomorrow, Tuesday February 4th, is precinct caucus night in Minnesota. Precinct caucus night is when neighbors from all political persuasions gather in schools, church basements, and other locations to debate and discuss platform issues for their respective political parties, elect delegates and alternates for future district and county conventions, and take the first steps toward endorsing candidates for elected office.
It's your chance to make your voice heard, and have a direct impact on the future and direction of your respective political party.
If you are passionate about a certain issue, precinct caucuses are the first step toward possibly amending a party platform. If you support a candidate for office, you can demonstrate your support for that candidate by showing up. Maybe you just want to gather with like-minded neighbors and see what the caucus process is all about. No matter your reason, I urge you to consider taking time to attend your party's caucus tomorrow evening.
If you aren't sure of your caucus location, you can visit the Secretary of State's website caucusfinder tool at http://caucusfinder.sos.state.mn.us/.
March for Life
Two weeks ago on January 22nd, I joined with dozens of other legislators in attending the March for Life rally at the Capitol. It was a wonderful event to celebrate the pro-life cause, and show our support for protecting the sanctity of life. Thank you to the hundreds of activists from around the state -- some who traveled several hundred miles -- for your dedication and support for this important cause.
