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 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 an attorney general. The PAC also uses an automatic endorsement process for incumbents seeking reelection, which uses the the lifetime legislative vote scores of an incumbent based upon MAPE's legislative priorities. Those receiving a lifetime vote score of 90 percent or above receive an automatic endorsement. Automatic endorsements may be withheld for extraordinary circumstances by vote of the majority of the PAC.
