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.

Our work:

  • Candidate endorsements. Every two years, our PAC endorses candidates for the state House and Senate to ensure a labor friendly Legislature. Every four years, our PAC endorses candidates running for office in the executive branch of Minnesota government to ensure a labor friendly governor and lieutenant governor, state auditor, secretary of state an attorney general. To view the PAC's endorsements for 2018, go here:
