A week ago, Sharon Sund was endorsed by acclimation during the early part of the DFL 3rd Congressional District Party’s convention in Maple Grove. Party activist and former CD3 Chair, George Greene nominated Sund. The seconding and the voice vote took a few additional seconds putting Sund in the ring with G.O.P. incumbent Eric Paulsen.
Two years ago, Brian Barnes won the DFL CD3 Party endorsement over Sund. Barnes went on to lose to the conservative Eden Prairie Republican.
Sund’s early endorsements include Congressman Keith Ellison, MN 2020 founder and former State Rep Matt Entenza, Carver County Commissioner Randy Maluchnik, former State Rep. Betty Folliard, State Rep. Mike Nelson (40A), and Democracy for America. I have assembled video that I had lensed of Sharon’s endorsement and post-endorsement speech into a segment for the next edition of Democratic Visions. The segment contains only a portion of Sharon Sund’s speech.
