DFLers hit swing districts to push accomplishments.
A new book, “Minnesota in the ’70s” by Dave Kenney & Thomas Saylor, revisits the inception of the ‘Minnesota Miracle.’
In 2012, the DFL and 13 of its Senate candidates benefited from hundreds of thousands of dollars in falsely classified independent expenditures that in fact were paid for by the party.
Tea Party activists are reacting with alarm to Rep. Erik Paulsen’s comments suggesting that he would be willing to break with GOP House leadership in order to end the federal government shutdown.
With less than three weeks left in the 2013 session, time is running out for the Minnesota state Legislature and the governor to reach deals on many critical pieces of legislation, including the budget.
It was widely expected that Gov. Mark Dayton would govern as a liberal. It is somewhat surprising that he finds himself besieged by a DFL-dominated state House and Senate that each is pushing budget plans more liberal than the governor says he will accept.
With just three weeks before the scheduled adjournment of the 2013 legislative session, the intent of the DFL lawmakers’ actions is clear. They are doing everything imaginable in their power to drive entrepreneurs and job creators out of Minnesota.
When it comes to spending by Minnesota’s political parties, the state DFL has emerged as the No. 1 player in the 2012 battle for control of Legislature.
DFL legislative and party leaders and Gov. Mark Dayton plan to tour swing districts throughout the state in the six days before the Nov. 6 general election.
Franzen announced her bid for the seat on Tuesday, just hours before precinct caucuses kick off across the state. Franzen plans to seek the DFL endorsement for the Senate District 41 seat on Tuesday evening and has no known challengers.
Senate District 59, which encompasses the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota and northeast Minneapolis, is home to one of the most concentrated DFL constituencies in Minnesota.
Democrats in Minnesota have been slow to rise to the redistricting fight this time around. During session, DFL caucuses in the Minnesota House and Senate passed on the chance to produce maps to counter a GOP majority proposal that pitted 26 incumbents against one another, the vast majority of them DFLers.
