ROBBINSDALE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota DFL Party has re-elected Ken Martin as chairman.

At a conference Saturday in Robbinsdale, Martin was elected to a second two-year term. The party says that under Martin’s leadership, it raised and spent a record $14 million in 2012, while canceling its debt. The DFL says the spending helped regain majorities in the Minnesota Senate and House and send U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan to Washington.
