Dean Phillips

Dean Phillips, the Jewish heir to a distillery fortune and the founder of a gelato company, handily won the Democratic primary in Minnesota’s 3rd District.

Phillips, who rejected money from political action committees, is the grandson of Pauline Friedman Phillips, better known as the advice columnist Dear Abby.

He will face incumbent Republican Erik Paulsen in November. Democrats believe they have a shot at flipping the district, which comprises suburbs of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
