Race Update - from Erik Paulsen for Congress:

Three respected ratings analysts (Cook Political Report, Rothenberg/Gonzales Political Report and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball) recently downgraded Erik Paulsen’s race from Safe Republican to Lean Republican.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has added Democratic challenger State Senator Terri Bonoff to their “Red to Blue” program for top-tier challengers.

As of late May, Democrats (between the DCCC and Pelosi’s House Majority PAC) have reserved over $6.4 million in TV time in the Minneapolis-St. Paul media market.

Rothenberg/Gonzales Political Report:

“Democrats are trying to expand the House of Representatives playing field by targeting suburban districts and they believe State Senator Terri Bonoff pulls this race into play. She dropped out of the 2008 race after young Iraq War veteran Ashwin Madia won the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party’s endorsement, but she’s back in 2016. Party strategists are excited by Bonoff’s fundraising – which brought in over $600,000 in the 2 nd quarter. Paulsen announced his campaign raised over $1 million in the 2 nd quarter and has over $2 million cash on hand advantage. The district is competitive enough (Obama won 50 to 49 in 2012) and Trump is toxic enough for this seat to be considered in play. We’re moving from Safe GOP to Republican Favored.” (14 July

2016)

The Five Seats that Could Signal a Democrat House Majority in 2016 “Rep. Erik Paulsen, Minnesota's Third District: The western suburbs of Minneapolis have been held by a Republican since the '60s. They've sent their current member of Congress, Paulsen, to Washington every two years since 2008. But this area has drifted to the left in recent years, and its voters tend to be more highly educated than the average Trump supporter. Outside groups are watching and waiting to see if state Sen. Terri Bonoff (D) can get some momentum and/or there's an indication Paulsen will get dragged down by Trump. (So far, he's tried to keep his head down, saying he "expects to vote for the nominee.") If this seat moves, it could happen quickly:

Democratic abortion-rights group Emily's List is talking to Bonoff, and Democratic super PAC House Majority PAC has reserved airtime in nearby Minneapolis that

could be used to chase this seat.” – A. Phillips, The Washington Post (10 June 2016)
