Here's what LCV said about GOP Congressman Jim Ramstad, who represents Minnesota's Third Congressional District:
“During his tenure in Congress, Rep. Ramstad has supported common sense solutions to America’s energy challenges, such as requiring that new cars go further on a gallon of gas. He understands that it is imperative that America transitions to a new energy economy based on clean renewable energy technologies. Rep. Ramstad has been a credit to Minnesota’s 3rd District and LCV is proud to endorse Rep. Ramstad for re-election,”
And here's what they said about DFLer Patty Wetterling who is running for Congress in Minnesota's Sixth District:
Patty Wetterling understands that by investing in clean energy technologies, we are investing in our future public health and economy. We know Patty Wetterling will be a true leader in Congress for the people of Minnesota’s 6th District.”
In addition to her strong support for investing in renewable energy, Ms. Wetterling is also a proponent of investing in public transportation projects. In Congress, she will support public transportation measures and will work to extend Minnesota’s Northstar Commuter Rail line from Minneapolis to St. Cloud.
Republican Michele Bachmann and Independence Party member John Binkowski are running against Wetterling. Here's a link to the other endorsements by the LCV.
