img-thankyou-democratWith the worst mid-term election since 1928 and Democrats losing races across the nation, the Minnesota DFL met all but one of our goals:

  • reelect Gov. Dayton;
  • reelect Sen. Franken;
  • reelect our congressional delegation;
  • reelect Attorney General Lori Swanson
  • reelect Auditor Rebecca Otto and
  • elect Steve Simon as our next Secretary of State.

For the first time since 1970 – 44 years – the Minnesota elected a DFL Governor and DFL U.S. Senator.

With fewer than 2 million people voting we fell short on our fifth goal, retaining the majority in the Minnesota House. DFL Chairman Ken Martin makes the point that 10 of the 11 seats that the GOP picked up were in Greater Minnesota.

“The GOP message did not resonate with suburban voters who left the gains that the DFL made in 2012 in suburban districts relatively intact,” Martin said. “The DFL’s ability to win in suburban districts in a difficult mid-term election suggests that the GOP is becoming increasingly confined to a rural party. Indeed their inability to compete in the more populous parts of the state has prevented them from winning ANY statewide office since 2006.”

Thank you to everyone for their hard work to elect leaders who will build a better Minnesota and represent our values in Washington, D.C. We look forward to working together to ensure that the DFL is a Party built to win, built to last and that we retake the Minnesota House and go blue for our Democratic presidential candidate in 2016.

Members of the Democratic Farmer Labor (DFL) Party marked 100 days until the Nov. 4 election with a weekend of volunteers taking action. DFL Chairman Ken Martin said over the weekend DFL elected officials, candidates, volunteers, and staff reached nearly 100,000 voters.

“The weekend’s pre-primary drive was unprecedented in Minnesota,” Martin said. “With so many boots on the ground, DFLers were able to reach out to voters not only about the upcoming primary and general elections, but about the new early voting options. This is a huge accomplishment.”

Official kickoffs for “100 Days of Action” were held with DFL leaders Sunday, July 27 at nearly 20 locations around the state. Martin appeared at the St. Paul “100 Days of Action” kickoff with State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Mayor Chris Coleman, and Gov. Mark Dayton.

“I can think of more than 100 reasons to make sure we re-elect Governor Dayton, Senator Franken and make sure we keep the majority in the Minnesota House,” Martin said. “We have to make sure we don’t take anything for granted because the stakes couldn’t be any higher.”

Martin talked about the progress made under DFL leadership in the past two years. There are more jobs than any other time in state history (160,000 jobs have been created since Gov. Dayton was elected); free all-day kindergarten will begin this fall; and Minnesota’s lowest-paid workers will receive a wage increase, impacting 137,000 children whose parents make minimum wage.

“We can make a difference in people’s lives,” Martin said, “let’s go out there and fight for that.” (more…)
