Meet a Progressive Candidate for Congress from Iowa in St. Paul, MN!
Spread the word! Please forward to your friends!

You are invited to a reception with Paul Johnson, Democratic candidate for Iowa's 4th Congressional District, this Sunday, July 25th in St. Paul from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. at the Radisson Riverfront Hotel, 11 East Kellogg Boulevard.

Paul will be on hand to talk about his campaign to beat incumbent Republican Tom Latham, who has the highest pro-Bush voting record among the Iowa congressional delegation. The 4th congressional district is a real swing district in Iowa, which is one of the most hotly contested states in the Presidential election.

Paul was an Iowa state representative from 1984 to 1990, where he helped to pass groundbreaking environmental legislation and helped to found the Aldo Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture.

Paul also served as director of the Soil Conservation Service under the Clinton Administration and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources under Iowa's Governor Tom Vilsack. Paul and his wife Patricia met as a result of their Peace Corps experience in the early 60s, and have lived and worked on a farm near Decorah for 30 years.

You can learn more about Paul by visiting his website, http://www.votejohnson.org .

If you can't join us on Sunday but would like to contribute to Paul's campaign, we encourage you to make a contribution online or mail one to our campaign headquarters (Johnson for Congress, PO Box 475, Decorah, IA 52101).

So come on out and have some snacks, drinks and good conversation...for a change!

"The modern patriotism, the true patriotism, the only rational patriotism is loyalty to the nation all the time, loyalty to the government when it deserves it." -- Mark Twain
