MINNESOTANS FOR REAL REPRESENTATION is a volunteer, grassroots, political action organization in Minnesota's Third District.
We have one goal.
TO REPLACE CONGRESSMAN ERIK PAULSEN IN 2018.
We take this pledge very seriously. We know that replacing Paulsen requires a massive effort and a lot of money. We're up against the Koch Brothers and other billionaires whose networks fund Erik Paulsen, advance a radical agenda and infiltrate every state. But we've got boots on the ground in the Third District to serve as a grassroots, countervailing force. Surrounded and supported by local citizen-activists, Minnesotans for Real Representation is developing and executing key strategies to flip Minnesota's Third Congressional District in 2018.
Why are we doing this? Paulsen is advancing the extreme Trump/Ryan agenda, and failing to providing his constituents with anything that resembles real representation. A real representative would actually meet with his constituents in a face-to-face town hall. A real representative would not vote for policies that will harm his constituents.
As a conservative Republican in a moderate to left-leaning district, Paulsen has a 97.2% Trump Score on fivethirtyeight.com, one of the highest Trump scores in the House. But in 2016 Hillary Clinton took the district by more than nine points, which was a clear rejection of the harmful Trump/Ryan agenda.
Many of the good people of the Third District voted for Paulsen thinking he would be a moderate voice in Congress, but his votes tell another story. Paulsen supported the unpopular and harmful AHCA bill that would hurt his own constituents, and a Tax Reform bill that will raise taxes on people in nearly every tax bracket while ballooning the deficit.
That's not right. That's why we're taking action to Replace Paulsen.
