All candidates for Minnesota State Senate District 32 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Minnesota State Senate District 32 — Kate Luthner (D) and Michael Kreun (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office. 

Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls the Senate in Minnesota’s state legislature. Minnesota is one of 13 states with a divided government.

Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?            


  • “Public education funding is my top priority.”
  • “Reproductive rights need to be protected in our state”
  • “In all things; equity and ethics”


  • “I will secure funding to improve Highway 65 in Blaine and Ham Lake to relieve congestion and improve safety.”
  • “I support providing tax relief to all Minnesotans, including the elimination of the state tax on social security.”
  • “I will support law enforcement and get Minnesota’s unacceptable crime rate under control.”
