Tina's Vision

I’m a fierce advocate for a Minnesota that works for everyone — not just the lucky few. And I know that when we work together and put Minnesota values first, nothing can stop us from turning that vision into reality.

The Challenge

It’s true: we are living through one of the most challenging times in the history of our country. Many of those in Washington seem to think their job is to take care of the wealthy and powerful – at the expense of working and middle-class families. Angry calls to turn against our neighbors tear at the very social fabric that has held us together as Americans, through good times and bad. And right here in Minnesota, while there is much to be proud of, we know how far we are from ensuring that opportunity and prosperity – the right to live a life with dignity – isn’t limited by your race, class, or zip code.

The Minnesota Way Forward

Despite these very real challenges, I believe that things can – and will – change for the better.

My belief is grounded in what I know to be true about my fellow Minnesotans: we get together to solve problems, to lift each other up, to find and stand on common ground. In every corner of our state, I’ve seen hard-working Minnesotans build better futures for their kids and families, create good jobs, volunteer to improve their communities, care for our seniors, welcome new neighbors from around the country and world. We’re creative, we’re practical, and we don’t just complain about what’s holding us back – we come up with solutions.

And I’m optimistic because I’ve seen firsthand in my career and life how community organizations, businesses, and government can help level the playing field, create opportunity, unleash innovation and make sure everyone has a seat at the table and a voice in the decisions that impact their lives. I’ve dedicated my life trying to make those institutions work best for people and understand clearly the responsibility I have to bring that Minnesota sensibility to the U.S. Senate.

I’m not naïve about the scale of the challenges we face. I just know they’re no match for the people of this state when we come together, stand shoulder to shoulder, and each do our part to create the reality Paul Wellstone described where "we all do better when we all do better."

Minnesota Values

In Minnesota, we’re proud of our inclusivity. Yet even here, women still earn less than men. We must do better -- and we will. The wage gap leaves millions of women and their families behind. Women on average still make 80 cents to the dollar, while women of color earn even less. Stand with Tina: Equal pay for all women, because none of us succeed unless all of us succeed.
