Sharon Sund, who is running for Third District Congress in Minnesota, has received an "A" level rating from the Stonewall DFL. For context:

Stonewall DFL is the LGBT caucus of the Democratic Farmer Labor (DFL) Party of Minnesota. Our goal is to encourage participation of LGBT persons within the DFL. We screen and endorse candidates from local school board races to United States Senate. We strive to inform the greater DFL, elected officials and citizens about the issues facing the GLBT community. Being an active member of Stonewall DFL provides greater access to the political process through establishing relationships with elected officials past, present and future.

Sharon has been working for all sorts of progressive causes for years, including LGBT issues, health care insurance reform, and so on. She's also signed the Science Pledge.

This is a big weekend coming up; the DFL caucuses for many districts happen on Saturday. You may not be hearing a lot from me the next couple of days because I'll be a bit busy with that.

In the meantime, it would be helpful if you could go to Facebook and "like" Sharon's page! If enough people like it, we win!!! (The facebook liking contest, not the election.)
