Read Keith's statement on Third District DFL-endorsed candidate Brian Barnes:
"I'm proud to join DFLers in Minnesota's Third District and support Brian Barnes as our endorsed candidate to take on Erik Paulsen.
As an Eagle Scout, midshipman at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and lieutenant commander in the Navy Reserve, Brian has devoted his life to service. He has fresh ideas, strong values, and an absolute devotion to middle class and working families.
I look forward to working with Brian in the coming months to tell Minnesota families what's at stake this election.
We can either follow the same failed policies of Wall St deregulation and tax cuts for millionaires being pushed by Republicans, or we can create economic prosperity for middle class and working families by creating jobs, investing in our children's future, and making sure we have tax fairness.
Brian will make a formidable opponent because he supports policies that are highly popular among voters--like affordable health care, getting our troops out of Afghanistan, and putting America back to work again.
I'm confident that Brian will be a smart, effective, and compassionate Representative for the people of Minnesota's Third District."
