ROCHESTER, Minn.- Gubernatorial candidate Erin Murphy made a stop in Rochester to unveil her plan for the states healthcare system.
Murphy’s vision is to cover every minnesotan with single payer health coverage.
That means the state to contract directly with health care providers to provide basic healthcare.
Essentially cutting out big pharmaceutical and insurance company.
Murphy says this will put money and power in the voters hands.

“It’s putting the care back in healthcare,” said Murphy.
Suzanne Szucs was at the meeting today and says Murphy is in the race to help people not big companies.
“She’s in support of creating a culture in this state that's about togetherness and about compassion and caring for each other and working together,” said Szcs,

Murphy won the Minnesota DFL endorsement.
