Minneapolis, MN –  Today, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges announced the endorsement and support of Senator Al Franken for her re-election campaign.

“Minneapolis needs a tested leader, and I need a local partner, to stand up to the President’s attacks on cities and people​ all across the country,” said Senator Franken. “I know we can count on Mayor Betsy Hodges to look out for our neighbors, build on past successes, and, in the time of Trump, protect the gains we’ve made together.  I’m proud to support Betsy’s campaign for re-election, and I’m proud to call her my friend.”

“I am honored to win the endorsement of Senator Al Franken. He’s showing us all the kind of determination and creativity that it takes to stand up for the people of Minneapolis in the time of Trump, when Republicans are coming after our cities and our people,” said Mayor Hodges. “He’s always been a strong partner who digs in to do the hard, long-term work of actually getting things done for Minneapolis. He’s also been there as a friend. I can’t wait to continue our work together.”
