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

As Joe Biden heads over to France to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, it is a reminder of the stakes of this election.
Yesterday was a great day because justice prevailed. Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts.
For last month’s fundraising deadline, I offered to humiliate myself physically and emotionally — and it was one of my most successful fundraising emails this year!
May 21st marks the birthday of Mr. T and, also, me. Pity the fool who doesn’t see this as the perfect opportunity to support Midwest Values PAC in our effort to make sure November 5th is a happy day for us all.

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.
