we’re building

John – Every single day I get requests from DFLers across the state asking Julie to stop by their fish fries, booyas, hotdishes, other fundraisers and rallies. And she rarely says no. Julie is committed to doing everything she can to get every single Democratic voter fired up and out to the po…

deadline tomorrow

John – I wanted to be sure we connected before the big holiday weekend, because the next two days are pretty important. Friday is the end of our quarter and is an important way point in our efforts to elect Democrats across Minnesota in 2024. Can I count on you to help keep me crisscrossing t…

re: New Poll

John – Today is the one-year anniversary of the Dobbs decision and the end of Americans' right to an abortion. In GOP controlled states across the country abortion is being effectively banned for women who can’t afford to travel to receive care. The silver lining is that Americans are being ga…

New Poll (it’s good!)

John – This week marks one year since the shocking decision was handed down in the Dobbs case, overturning Americans' right to an abortion and upending half a century of settled case law. One thing has been clear over the past year: the GOP is paying the price for their wildly out of touch vie…

John – I saw something today that got me a bit fired up. GOP Presidential candidate Nikki Haley claimed this morning that she wanted to find “consensus” on abortion in America. As someone who's been working to protect reproductive rights since the 80's, I know bullshit when I hear it. America…

53 for 53

it's julie's birthday! John - Today is the big day – it’s Julie’s 53rd birthday! We just showed her the card that so many of you signed, and she couldn’t have been more thankful. You’re the people that give Julie her energy and what makes this campaign keep moving. We’re hoping you’ll step up …

A surprise for Julie!

John – Julie is celebrating her 53rd birthday today, and all of us here at Team Blaha are looking for ways to help celebrate. There’s nothing Julie loves more than getting out on the road and seeing all of you across Minnesota. But with everything going on this year, she’s not going to have tim…

this is about women’s rights, but not just that

John – The extreme ruling by a Trump appointed judge seeking to ban Mifepristone isn’t just an attack on women’s healthcare, it’s an attack on regulatory authority itself. The GOP is doing it’s best to bring us back to the Gilded Age; they’re attacking child labor protections, regulation of fo…

showing their hand

John – The GOP has shown its hand in Tennessee. When given the opportunity, they’re not just content with gerrymandering the maps to keep themselves in power, they’ll also silence their opposition if they say anything, they don’t like. This is what played out in Tennessee last week. It was r…

Checking back

John – We’ve got just a few more hours before our end of quarter deadline at midnight tonight, and we’re coming up short so far. That’s why we’re checking back with you now. Can Julie count on you to help put us over the top of our quarterly goal? Please, make a contribution before midnight! …

closest race

John – Julie’s win last fall was the closest race of any statewide DFLer. We won because of your help and commitment. We’re hoping you’re still willing to help and still committed. You see, after a win that close, the GOP is already looking for who they’ll run next. They think the Auditor’s …

almost there

John – If you’ve met my finance director, you know he’s aggressive. And when he told me his goal for this first quarter after our extremely close victory last fall, I thought he was out of his mind. But now we're almost there, and I need your help to hit my goal before midnight. Can I count on …

FW: Help Rob Sand!

a little help for our friends

John – You’ve heard me say this before, as an Auditor there’s no national organization looking out for me or making sure that I’ve got the support I need. I always say I count on all of you, and I mean it. That’s why when I saw my friend Rob Sand, Iowa’s Democratic Auditor, under attack by the…

Main Street Matters!

John – I wanted to be sure you were up to date on some of the critical work that Julie does as our State Auditor. Over the past month, she crisscrossed the state during her “State of Main Street” listening tour as she reviewed the 2021 financial data for counties, cities and townships. Check …

Send Walgreens a message

John – Last week Walgreens announced it would not sell legal, FDA approved medications in more than 20 states to appease the extreme views of GOP elected officials who dominate those states. It’s nothing new that the GOP is blocking access to medications that aid women in obtaining safe and le…

Fwd: Add Your Voice: Our Stand for the Free Market

Add Your Voice: Our Stand for the Free Market

John – I’ve joined Auditors, Treasurers, and Comptrollers from states across the country in denouncing the short sighted tactics of GOP legislatures in red states. These GOP dominated legislatures have enacted bans on financial firms that engage in ESG (environmentally responsible) investment …

it’s just you

John – Getting elected is all about having the strongest organization possible. When the campaign gets tough, you need folks who have your back. It’s even better when they’re organized. The Governor has the DGA, the Attorney General the DAGA, folks running for Congress have the DCCC, even stat…

building to a win

John – We can’t build to our next win without your help. And it’s about a whole lot more than making sure that Julie’s campaign is as strong as possible. It’s about growing the party during the off year, growing the party during the next election, and making sure we go into our next election …

FW: Did you see this?

John – Environmental friendly investing (ESG) makes sense for Minnesotans -- and not just because we care about protecting our natural resources. This investment strategy has a better long term return. Read Julie's full message below, and then add your name here to send a message in support of …

protecting the environment makes sense

John – As Auditor, I am a member of the State Board of Investment. It might not sound like much, but the decisions we make that affect the retirement of hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans. Every decision we make there is a big decision. I recently talked to Responsible Investor about the be…

it's all at stake

John – We learned our lesson last cycle, big time. My campaign didn't really kickoff until we were a month or two into the election year. Way too late. We had the closest statewide race in the state. This time we're never really stopping. Heck, I don't even want to slow down! That's how we e…

John – After pulling off the closest win statewide in 2022, I'm committed to building the party and campaign that Democrats across the state will need to win in 2024 and 2026. We've got a lot of work to do, and we can't wait until 2023 (or 2025!) to do it. Please, contribute today and help me…

I'm not going to be quiet

John – I've spent the past four years working hard, day in, day out for the people of Minnesota. I'm proud of the work I've done, and Minnesota is better for it. But I faced a self-funded opponent who was able to spend hundreds of thousands of his own dollars spreading half-truths and outright…

here's what we're up against

John – We really can't thank everyone enough who helped power Julie's campaign to victory in 2022. We were the closest statewide race in Minnesota, and one of the closest that a Democrat won without a recount. Because of that, we're committed to building a stronger party and a stronger campai…
