President Obama offered a defense of his party’s policies, including healthcare overhaul and Wall Street reform during a campaign stop at the University of Minnesota. He told the audience that voting for Republicans would be voting to slide backwards and undo the economic progress Democrats had made.
Obama was in the Twin Cities to raise money for Minnesota Democrats running for Congress and to hold a campaign event for Democrat Mark Dayton’s campaign for governor. Obama said Dayton was the only candidate capable of delivering change.
“So I need you to keep fighting, I need to you to keep working, I need you to keep believing. And if you knock on some doors again, if you make some phone calls again, if you talk to your neighbors again, then I promise you we won’t just win this election, we won’t just have Mark as governor, but you and I together, we are going to restore the american dream.”
