MARY SORTEBERG: Nursing isn't just a job. It's really a calling. That's how my husband, Jeff, sees running for the U.S. Senate.
(Text on screen: Mary, registered nurse)
Jeff is passionate about changing this country and fixing health care so everyday people get the care they need.
He wants to take power away from the drug and insurance lobbyists and give it back to patients like the ones I see. Jeff will get his health care ideas from families, patients and nurses like me.
