Proposed DFL redistricting map irks McCollum

The Minnesota DFL Party submitted a congressional redistricting plan Friday that would place Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum into a district with GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann. Bachmann is currently running for the GOP presidential nomination, but hasn't ruled out another run for Congress. The plan has prompted McCollum's chief of staff to send an e-mail criticizing the proposal. "The DFL Chair and his high-paid lawyers have proposed a congressional map to the redistricting panel that is hyper-partisan and bizarre," McCollum's chief of staff Bill Harper said in the email. "Their plan ignores the ...

"It's more of the gridlock that has become really, really bad," Leary said as she waited to see McCollum, a politician she admires. "It's lethal." Constituents worried about rollercoaster stock markets, near government default, a potentially broken ...

McCollum Statement on Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Washington, DC – Today, President Obama announced that he would take new steps to address our nation’s broken system of immigration in light of Congressional inaction.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement in response: “President Obama’s decision to take unilateral action to fix our nation’s broken immigration system is welcome news.  I share his frustration with Republicans in the House of Representatives and their refusal to allow a vote on the comprehensive immigration reform bill that has already passed the Senate.  “Real solutions for securing our borders, a pathway to citizenship and ways for highly-skilled workers to enter our economy are ideas that have broad support from the faith, business, labor, and law enforcement communities.  Yet, Speaker Boehner and his Tea Party colleagues refuse to act. “The American people have made it very clear that they support comprehensive immigration reform and it is time to insist that politici

Letter from Congresswoman McCollum to Zygi Wilf Regarding Washington Team Name
June 19, 2014 Mr. Zygi Wilf Minnesota Vikings Football Club 9520 Viking Drive Eden Prairie MN, 55344 Dear Mr. Wilf: Yesterday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled to cancel legal protections for the trademarked name of the National Football League’s Washington franchise because it is “disparaging to Native Americans.”  The time for debate has ended – the name of the Washington franchise is clearly an offensive racial slur. I urge you, as an NFL team owner, to not remain silent on this matter any longer. Thirty-one NFL franchises split the sales of their licensed merchandise equally.  When a shirt, cap, or jersey bearing the Washington team name is sold, the Minnesota Vikings share in the profit from that sale.  After yesterday’s decision, all NFL owners must now ask themselves if they want to continue to profit from a name so hurtful to our Native American brothers and sisters that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office deemed it ineligible for federal protection. B
McCollum Responds to Hobby Lobby Decision
Washington, DC – This morning, the United States Supreme Court issued their decision in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby. In response, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) issued the following statement:  “Today’s decision from the Supreme Court is an attack on the rights of women and sets a dangerous new standard for corporate personhood that I completely reject. All women deserve the right to make their own decisions about their health, without the intrusion of their employer’s views or beliefs. My commitment is to find every legislative avenue available to reverse this ruling which is an attack on women and sound medical science.”
