A sixth generation Minnesotan, Dean is a successful, fiscally responsible, socially inclusive entrepreneur. As a business leader, he developed products and practices good for America — from organic spirits to a commitment to pay his employees a living wage. Dean will bring his business experience to Congress, where his strong, independent voice of reason will cut through the clamour of a broken system that prioritizes deep-pocketed interests. Since middle school, Dean has disdained the role of special interest money in campaigns. He fights for a more transparent, decent, and moral government – a government freed from the grip of mega-donors, a government free to serve every American equally.
