Hubbard County DFL Walleye & Wild Rice Dinner
At the Hubbard County DFL Walley Dinner I heard a lot of praise for showing up. Another candidate for #MN08 sent a paid staffer as proxy, and they repped another candidate in the same speech.
I also heard a lot of very practical tips for winning the race in Hubbard County, and about some of the sorrows of budget cuts under the Trump administration and GOP control of the Minnesota legislature, including a 7% cut to the DAC (Developmental Achievement Center), a drop in center for the developmentally disabled.
I spoke with bean farmers and broadcasters, politicians, party leaders and rank-and-file Democrats.
I encouraged everyone to commit to doorknocking and phonebanking, because we are not going to be rescued by a “Blue Wave” we have to be the Blue Wave.
The food was of course delicious, and everyone should put the next Hubbard County DFL dinner on their calendar!
