MIKE PARRY: THE ELECTABLE CONSERVATIVE
Why Mike is Our Best Candidate
PROVEN VOTE GETTER
The Republican candidate for Congress must be able to build a broad based coalition to win district-wide. The FirstDistrict is nearly an even mix of Republicans, independents, and Democrats. A successful candidate must not onlywin Republicans but also win significant numbers of independents and Reagan Democrats.
 
Mike Parry has
out-performed the top of the ticket
in his senate district. In 2010, Parry received morevotes than any Republican statewide candidate in the district.

In 2008, Barack Obama won the First District with 51%; in 2004, George Bush won the First District with51%. 2012 is a Presidential-Election Year, and a winning Republican candidate for Congress must be ableto
out-perform the top of the ticket
 – 
only Mike Parry has demonstrated an ability to do this.
AN EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR
In the state senate, Mike Parry often serves as a spokesman for Republicans on key issues. Parry effectivelycommunicates
our conservative principles in the media. In addition, Parry’s background in rural radio is a strong
asset in a district with rural areas.Allen Quist has attracted attention for controversial statements over the years. Quist is often remembered for his
statement “that a ‘genetic predisposition’ accounts for the tendency of men to be the heads of households.”
(
 Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 22, 1994
) Statements such as these would be very damaging in a general electioncampaign.
