Reaction to Ilhan Omar Winning the DFL Endorsement

We congratulate Ilhan Omar on receiving her party’s endorsement. In a crowded field of very qualified candidates, it was a difficult endorsement decision. It’s inspiring to see someone with her background achieve so much in America, and it’s great that the American dream is alive for all those who come to work for it.

Jennifer Zielinski is the best candidate to represent the people of Minnesota’s 5th District. She will be a voice of those who have not had a voice in a long time, a voice for all people. She will work to keep the American dream alive so Ilhan and all people can succeed. This country was founded on the principle that every American should have the opportunity to work hard and get ahead. It was not founded on handouts and dependence on the government. Jennifer will work to give real choice to the individual and every family, so they may succeed.

Reaction to Keith Ellison Filing for Attorney General

Jennifer-Zielinski-For MN5

We are happy to see Keith Ellison enter the Minnesota Attorney General race. We feel this is a positive change for Minnesota. Keith will bring his record of radical views and activities to the ballot for all Minnesotans. And we are confident if given the opportunity, the great people across Minnesota will reject Keith and his vision of the future for them.

It also opens up the race for Congress in Minnesota’s 5th. This gives the voters the option to break from the DFL leaders who care more for Antifa and open borders then about the failing schools of Minneapolis, the employment gap for minorities and the opioid abuse epidemic.

We feel the people of Minnesota’s 5th are ready for a change, and that change is Jennifer Zielinski.

The people of the CD5 count, they matter Keith!
