Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party
Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party convened Saturday with delegates poised to endorse Gov. Mark Dayton and Sen. Al Franken for second terms. Around 1,300 delegates gathered at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center to hear speakers praise the state’s Democratic elected officials for using their control of state government to champion their values. They cited new laws to raise the state’s minimum wage, invest in public schools and infrastructure projects, and legalize gay marriage.
