Campaign 2012: 50CAN Action Fund Focuses On RI & MN

Here's the latest education advocacy group response -- from 50CAN, one of the newest of these groups to sprout up over the past few years.  According to 50CAN c4 Action Fund ED Julie Marlette the activity focuses on candidates in two states -- Rhode Island and Minnesota:

In the Primary cycle:  Mia Ackerman (H-45) Representative Jon Brien (H-50) Maura Kelly (S-5). In the general election cycle:  Speaker Gordon Fox D (H-4) Senator Donna Nesselbush D (S-15) Senator Dawson Hodgson R (S-35) Mary Ann Shallcross Smith  (H-46)

"We also did some work on behalf of Senator Dan DaPonte (S-14) and in Minneapolis, Minnesota we have done some work on behalf of  a school board candidate, Josh Reimnitz, running in district 4. We did not formally endorse in either of these races."
