Jeff’s note: On April 19, 2016 Jon Tollefson announced on Facebook and elsewhere that he had suspended his campaign for Congress in order to support State Senator Terri Bonoff’s campaign for Minnesota Congressional District 3 saying:
I want to thank everyone who has been part of this campaign, given your support, and cheered us on from near and far. In a team sport, we sometimes make the assist rather than go for the goal ourselves. I will do everything I can to make sure Terri Bonoff wins in November. But this isn’t about me or Terri — it’s about our movement. We have so much to defend and so much progress we need to make. I am excited to continue that fight with you! Thank you for everything you’ve done.
My original entry follows:
Minnetonka’s Jon Tollefson is seeking to replace Republican Erik Paulsen in Congress next January and hopes to win the DFL endorsement on Saturday May 14th. Tollefson discusses his positions with Tim O’Brien on the March edition of Democratic Visions. I could write much more, but Jon says it much better in the thirteen minute segment that leads off the March edition of Democratic Visions. Click here for the 13 minute long segment.

Comment below fold.
From Mac Hall: Republican Erik Paulsen who happily endorses business-benefitting policies while running campaign ads and on a platform of being “The Math Guy”, living within your means, cut spending and so forth, then votes to add 1.2 trillion dollar to the deficit.
He calls himself a fiscal conservative and then works for more business tax cuts … with his latest effort to reduce the “beer tax” … a small excise that is passed on to the consumers that he wants cut … offering no offset … meaning the deficit increases … and consumers will not see any change in the product cost.
