About

For 75 years the Minnesota DFL has worked to elect strong political leaders who will work to improve the lives of everyday Minnesotans. We believe that every Minnesotan has a right to stable employment with fair wages, to a proper education, to accessible and affordable healthcare, to live in safe communities, to inhabit a livable planet and to retire with dignity and security.
