DFL leaders tour state, rally troops days before the election


In the final days before the election, Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken and DFL leaders will tour the state for the 2014 GOTV Bus Tour.

“Thanks to the DFL’s work to improve the economy, create jobs and invest in education, voters have been supportive of our candidates,” said DFL Chairman Ken Martin. “The statewide bus tour is a chance for our elected officials to capitalize on the momentum we’ve built as we head toward Election Day.”

The tour runs Oct. 29 through Nov. 3. It kicks off Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 9 a.m. with a press conference and rally at the State Capitol. The first day the bus will visit communities in Congressional District 1. In the following days the bus will visit communities in every congressional district. The tour comes to a close on election eve back in St. Paul. 

“We’ll visit college campus, union halls and DFL action centers,” Martin said. “We look forward to celebrating the progress DFL leaders made over the past two years and firing people up to get DFLers to the polls Nov. 4.”

Martin said the tour will also be used to remind voters about the no excuse absentee voting sponsored by Steve Simon, the DFL-endorsed candidate for Secretary of State. For the first time in Minnesota, people have been able to vote by mail or in person without an excuse.

“During the week, we’ll encourage people to stop and vote on their way to or from the rally,” Marin said. “And it’s also important for voters to know that all county election offices, and cities that offer voting in person, will be open Saturday, Nov. 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.”

Martin said all rallies are free and open to the public.  A complete schedule is available at www.dfl.org/gotvtour.
