Building thriving communities for tomorrow
by electing candidates with integrity today.

SD 35 Democrats work together for a better Minnesota motivated by these core values:


After a delayed convention cycle, our district is very excited to announce endorsements of candidates to run for legislative offices. 
Mike Erickson (35A, Anoka and Ramsey) and Jason Ruffalo (35B, Andover and Northern Coon Rapids) are both candidates that are highly energized, informed and ready to listen and serve our residents.   We are thrilled to be working with them and look forward to having legislators that represent all the citizens in our district.  They do not come with a pre-conceived agenda to push, but to talk and listen to the concerns of all.  
This year has been particularly trying for everyone.  These two candidates are highly capable to help bring the wisdom and resources necessary for our community to thrive.
Please visit their websites.  They both have fantastic resumes for a legislative office. Please help their campaigns in any way you can.  We need to change the leadership in our community.
