Meet Dean Phillips, Democrat for President
Congressman Dean Phillips, Democratic Candidate for President
Who is Dean Phillips?
I am a third-term Democratic Congressman from Minnesota with a strong and independent voice of reason, a focus on inclusive, collaborative problem solving, and a commitment to principled leadership. And now, I am your Democratic candidate for President of the United States of America.
I first ran for Congress in 2018 after Trump got elected because I wanted to try and make a difference in where the country was heading. I am now running for President because I genuinely believe as things stand now, Donald Trump is poised to beat Joe Biden, and it's imperative we have another option to consider before it's too late.
I am the only member of Congress who refuses to take any money from PACs, federal lobbyists, or other members of Congress. I believe deeply that the way money works in government and politics is the root of our problem and demands reform. I was also selected as one of the most bipartisan members of Congress by Common Ground Committee.
Prior to entering politics, I founded and sold Talenti Gelato and was active in the non-profit sector. I am excited to bring a multidisciplinary background of public service, business, and non-profit experience to leadership.
Dean Phillips’s Commitments
I care deeply about making life for Americans more affordable. We have far too many people that cannot afford the increasingly expensive cost of living and our current economic policies are not working for everyday people the way they need to be. I will be focused on implementing policies that can help relieve this and ensure we continue to have opportunity for the next generation.
I believe very deeply that we must reduce the current political divisions we have in this country. Democracy cannot function when there is such strong factionalism and hate between people of different ideals and beliefs. We need to have the courage to do things differently and I will lead with principle, ethics, and inclusiveness of voices of all backgrounds.
Dean Phillips’s Family
I am a fifth-generation Minnesotan, the husband of Annalise Phillips, and the father of two remarkable daughters and our Norwich Terrier, Henry.
My mother is a retired shop owner and my brother is a physician.
My birth father was killed in the Vietnam War and I was adopted into the Phillips family when my mother remarried. I was fortunate to grow up in a blended family of great ethics, encouragement, opportunity, and love. It also demanded accountability, responsibility, hard work, and civic engagement. I live with gratitude for my blessings and was taught that success is not to be measured by how much one collects, rather by how much one shares.
