This seems more egregious, but I wonder how widespread this sort of thing is for both parties.

I don't know all the back story, but a former DFL legislator running for a Hennepin County seat seems to have the support of the party for endorsement mailings, door knocking, etc. Some of it may not come from the party per se, but through the help of endorsed candidates lending lists, recruiting volunteers, etc.

I answered an invitation I thought was door knocking for Keith Ellison and discovered it was really for the DFL slate, including the candidate "non-partisan" office. Since I supported another commissioner candidate, it became a bit uncomfortable.

I informed the candidate, who was there, of my position that I wouldn't hand out her lit if I door knocked, and she was gracious about it.

Editor's note: The Hennepin County candidate was endorsed by delegates at a convention held before the primary. Other than that, I'm sure the examples are exactly the same.
