Listen in to Up and At Em on NewsTalk (AM 1130) at 7:20am tomorrow, January 27, to hear David Gerson talk about his 2016 campaign for Congress, and his ideas on how Republicans can truly rein in the growth of the federal government.
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.
Please call John Kline at (202) 225-2271. Tell him to stop supporting Boehner and to vote for a principled conservative as the next Speaker of the House. The vote is tomorrow, so call right away!
I want to thank everyone who came out to support me today. It was been a long road and a powerful and humbling experience. I also wish to congratulate Congressman John Kline on winning the Republican endorsement. We must all work together to keep our district red in November.
The CD2 convention is tomorrow, and I'll be seeing many of you there. If I become your next Congressman, here is a brief statement on what some of my priorities will be.
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.
Tomorrow is the final BPOU Convention in the Second Congressional District. I look forward to meeting with the delegates and alternates at the MN Senate District 54 Republicans convention tomorrow!
The Senate District 51 Republicans convention is tomorrow! I look forward to meeting with the many delegates and alternates that we have been calling and visiting with.
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.

I will be at the HD52B Republicans chili cook-off next weekend. It is on Saturday, February 15th at the Fireside Lounge Bar & Restaurant in West Saint Paul from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. I'll be speaking briefly, enjoying chili and the company of fellow activists, and of course, discussing the issues and answering your questions. I hope to see you there!
I posted a copy of my letter that was distributed to the citizens who attended the Republican caucuses this past Tuesday.
