We all do better when we all do better

The words above are those of the late Senator Paul Wellstone, Al’s friend and political hero. Throughout Al’s time running for and serving in public office, Paul’s life, causes, and words have served as the bedrock for his vision of what it means to be a progressive Democrat.

Our Mission & Mandate

For over 15 years, Midwest Values PAC has supported progressive Democrats — from legislatures to Congress — who share our values. These are our values: We believe in economic and social justice, in the importance of education and the potential of clean energy, in accountability for the powerful and opportunity for everyone. We believe that elections offer a clear choice between two competing sets of values. And we believe that our values are worth fighting for.

From the Desk of

This weekend Trump threw a fundraiser at the mansion of a hedge-fund billionaire that supposedly raised $50 million. But who knows?
Here’s something you don’t want to get: Donald Trump’s “God Bless the USA Bible.” It’s $59.99.
Donald Trump and Republican politicians portray immigrants as murderers and rapists and drug dealers. Republican voters get a steady diet of the supposed carnage caused by immigrants fed to them by Fox News. It’s the only side of immigration they hear.
My often overly critical team tells me my email messages can be a little long-winded. They also tell me short emails can get more contributions.
Remember this email (see below) that I sent earlier this year saying Trump is not toast?
I was born in 1951 and grew up in a two-bedroom, one-bath rambler in St. Louis Park, a suburb of Minneapolis. My Dad never graduated high school and worked as a printing salesman. My mom was a real estate agent.

The Issues at Hand

Midwest Values PAC supports progressive Democrats who share our values and understand what issues to fight for.

Jobs & Families

We believe in creating good jobs that pay fair wages, and in the existence strong economic safety net will help keep families afloat during tough economic times.

Health care

We believe that health care is a right and not a privilege, that patients should have the power in our health care system, and that no American should go bankrupt because they get sick or die because they can’t afford care.

Education

We believe that education is one of the smartest investments we can make in an increasingly competitive global economy. We believe in funding early childhood education and that every neighborhood should have a strong public school. 

Energy

We believe that our dependence on foreign oil is an economic and national security risk, and that clean American energy represents an enormous opportunity.

Financial Reform

We believe in accountability for Wall Street, transparency in our financial markets, and basic protections for American consumers.

Equality

We believe that, in America, who you are shouldn’t determine what you can do – in school, at work, or in our society.

Midwest Values PAC supports candidates & causes that share our values.
