To that end, I adopted a campaign policy you will not see from very many politicians: To accept campaign money from individuals only—no PAC’s, lobbyists, party units, industries, unions, or any special-interest group—leaving me free to listen, with no ‘strings to be pulled’ when the time comes to vote.
I would note also that my opponent DOES NOT adhere to this policy, and receives significant campaign funding from these outside special sources. As disclosed by the MN Campaign Finance Board campaign reports, over the past two election cycles, Rep Poppe has obtained roughly 40% of her campaign funding from these outside special sources. In politics, money talks. One must assume that these political entities have their expectations in return.
