In whirlwind 71-day campaign, Anderson Kelliher Connected with Voters Across Entire District
(Minneapolis, MN – August 10, 2018) - Margaret Anderson Kelliher, candidate for Minnesota’s open 5th Congressional District seat, announced that she has visited every city in the district including: Brooklyn Center, Columbia Heights, Crystal, Edina, Fridley, Golden Valley, Hilltop, Hopkins, Minneapolis, New Hope, Richfield, Robbinsdale, Spring Lake Park, St. Anthony, and St. Louis Park. During the short campaign of 71 days, Anderson Kelliher has also visited every ward in the city of Minneapolis.
Anderson Kelliher has raised the most money and communicated with the most voters in the 5th District since filing on June 5. The only candidate to go on TV and the first be in the mailbox, and just one of two candidates to participate in 5 candidate forums, Anderson Kelliher has made it a priority to make sure voters across the entire district have the opportunity to make an informed choice on August 14.
The campaign includes a robust field operation that includes door knocking, phone calls, texting and literature drops throughout the entire district.
“From day 1, we’ve made it a priority to reach as many of the 700,000 people of the 5th district. I’ve done meet and greets, marched in 5 parades, met with labor leaders, stood up in protests, and participated in five candidate forums - with one more to go. As I’ve heard from voters in Richfield to North Minneapolis, it’s clear that everyone is concerned about the daily attempts by the Trump Administration to dismantle this democracy. People want someone who will bring creative solutions and strong coalition-building skills to Congress in the face of these backward, cruel policies. When Governor Pawlenty threatened to cut health care, education, and transportation and transit, I fought back and won over $8 billion of investments for our state. I’m ready to bring this leadership to Congress so we can take on Trump and his Administration,” said Anderson Kelliher.
