Keith Franke: Together we can FIX the process for US!

Keith Franke District 54A

Keith Franke
Candidate for
House District 54A

At this point, I am fortunate to have had financial support from involved citizens, friends, and family who have helped me fund my campaign but in this day and age a successful run for office requires A LOT of money to reach voters with your message. My campaign has been solely financed by these donations and I have made a vow not to take PAC money. The only “personal interest groups” that I am interested in entertaining are the personal interests of the people I would be representing when I am elected. Electing local representatives that are beholden only to the people who elect them is the first step in making meaningful change that will hopefully have a “trickle up” effect causing real campaign finance reform and ensuring that the voices of the people of this country are heard and not drowned out by the voices of big business and deep seeded dirty political machines.

It’s time to wake up America! The recent Wikileaks publications of the DNC is just the wake-up call we need to work on REAL campaign finance reform. It is important to know what your candidate stands for and where they get the money that funds their campaigns. If this is a country by the people, for the people then we need the people to get involved and make their voices heard! Unfortunately, money talks!

I need your support. Will you chip in $2, $5, $10, $20, or more for my campaign?

Thank you,

Keith Franke
Candidate for House District 54A

Holmstadt earns “A” grade from MN Gun Owners Caucus

Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus

Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus

Leilani Holmstadt, our candidate for MN Senate District 54, was awarded an “A” grade by the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus.

“I believe that the right to self defense is a human right. MN Gun Owners Caucus gave me an “A” rating. The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee works to elect and support Pro-Second Amendment candidates across the state” states Holmstadt.

The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus is a grassroots organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. They believe that law-abiding citizens should be able to own and use firearms for all lawful purposes, including self-defense, competition, hunting, and the shooting sports.

Their grades are based off of a number of factors, including a candidate survey that was sent to each candidate, the candidate’s public record of votes and statements, and grades from like-minded gun rights organizations.

The candidate survey covers a number of gun rights topics, including constitutional carry, self-defense law reform (stand your ground), licensing and registration, universal background checks, the right to keep and bear arms, and related topics.
