MAPE PAC Political Action Committee

MAPE PAC directs political action by providing election campaign support in the form of financial contributions, screening and endorsing Minnesota candidates, and working on campaigns for people who support us as state employees.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities

 

Our work:

  • Candidate endorsements. Every two years, our PAC screens and endorses candidates for the State House to ensure a labor-friendly Legislature. Every four years, our PAC endorses candidates running for office in the State Senate and executive branch of Minnesota government to ensure a labor-friendly governor and lieutenant governor, state auditor, secretary of state and attorney general. The PAC follows an expedited endorsement process for incumbents seeking reelection, which references the lifetime legislative vote scores of an incumbent based on MAPE's legislative priorities. Incumbents seeking an expedited endorsement must request one from the MAPE PAC. The PAC may choose to review or withhold an expedited endorsement under special circumstances by majority vote of the PAC.  Candidates seeking an endorsement screening, please contact Devin Bruce at dbruce@mape.org.
  • Impact of Redistricting. Expedited endorsements were sent out at the end of January. This year we've seen a number of pro-labor, MAPE-endorsed candidates drawn into the same districts. The PAC has determined the most fair way to go forward is to allow incumbents who received an expedited endorsement based on their lifetime vote scores, and who are running for reelection to their current legislative chamber, keep their MAPE endorsement. In accordance with the PAC's past practices and policies, no other dual endorsements will be permitted and incumbents running for a different level of office must go through the normal screening process before receiving an endorsement.
