About MN for David Carlson
David is a candidate for the Republican Nomination to the U.S. Senate in the great State of Minnesota.
This election is critical, and perhaps no seat can swing the balance of power in America like this senate seat. Senator Al Franken is vulnerable and has a mediocre record over six long years in Washington, and a record of 100% of voting with the administration, never veering off how he’s expected to vote. Minnesotans from across the political spectrum desire an alternative option to having to vote for Al Franken.
The problem is the Republican Party across America--and especially in Minnesota, continually put up candidates that are too extreme for the majority of Minnesotans; hence, voters opt for the perceived lesser of two evils. This has caused the the GOP to take loss after loss for decades now in the Gopher State. What makes me a better candidate before anything else is that I can win.
I believe I have the right experience and skill set to make a difference in Washington and help steer the nation back on track; we can only do that with new leadership, we can’t expect to do the same thing election after election and attain different results.
The marriage equality vote should say something to conservatives in Minnesota; it’s not an issue we’re going to win on, in fact, we’ll just take more losses across the board. That decision to go far right reverberated throughout the ballot.
Being on top of the ticket I know I can expand the base and bring more people into the tent. Being socially moderate allows me the benefit to not be trapped in the corner labeled anti-gay, anti-woman, not supportive of anti-bullying legislation and beholden to party bosses.
I’ve stood up for my principals, and stood against the party whenever I have seen fit. If elected, I will fight to the end for you and your family, because what happens to your family impacts my family too.
