The Export-Import Bank is just one more example of career politicians in Washington doing political favors for their friends. This program is a prime example of crony capitalism, and should be discontinued.

It was great to see so many supporters and activists at the MNGOP CD2 Convention today! We should remember that civil discourse will always be more effective at bringing Republicans together around our shared principles than divisive personal attacks. I also want to take a moment to congratulate our incoming CD2 executives - our party has a bright future indeed!

Congress is considering re-authorizing No Child Left Behind. Tell Congressman Kline that this is the wrong approach - we need real education reform that puts parents and communities in charge!

After conceding the 2014 endorsement to John Kline (who won by less than 3%) and upholding my promise to honor the endorsement, I am formally announcing my 2016 campaign for U.S. Congress at a press conference on Monday, January 26, at 1 PM, at the State Office Building, Room 181, St. Paul.

Thank you for your overwhelming encouragement to continue this campaign to challenge politics-as-usual.

Please join me as we move forward with OUR campaign. I hope to see you there.

Congressman John Kline continues to accuse me of lying, even as he keeps relying on half-truths and falsehoods to attack my character and dodge the real issue: his voting record. Here is my response.

GersonForCongress – John Kline accuses David Gerson of Lying

John Kline’s campaign continues to send out emails and letters stating that “Gerson is lying” about several subjects, but never backs up the claims with any quotes from me.

Congressman John Kline has insisted that he never supported ObamaCare. In reality however, he recently voted with the Democrats against a majority of Republicans to continue funding the program. Follow the link below to read my latest blog post.

Kline claims he did not vote for ObamaCare, but when America was outraged that Obama had lied to us about being able to keep our doctor and the Republicans were standing together to de-fund Obamacare, Kline voted with the Democrats against the majority of Republicans to fund ObamaCare (HR 2775 – Oct...

David Gerson For Congress shared Walter Hudson's photo.

Walter Hudson on the credibility of Kline's claim . . . .

Facebook Picture

Congressman John Kline has sent out a letter to delegates claiming that his endorsement challenger David Gerson "sponsored a controversial 9/11 'truth' event."

The event in question called Truth in Media was hosted by Liberty Minnesota and co-sponsored by the Minnesota Tea Party Alliance, the Republican Liberty Caucus, and several other credible activist organizations.

9/11 was not a topic, to say nothing of 9/11 "truth."

But even if it had been a "9/11 'truth' event," using the Kline campaign's fallacious reasoning of guilt by association, Kline himself would be indicted as a 9/11 truther for his own affiliation with another co-sponsor of the event.
