DFL Celebrates Landslide Special Election Victory

ST PAUL – Tonight, December 5, Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after DFL candidate Bianca Virnig won the special election for Minnesota House District 52B in a 17-point landslide.

“Congratulations to Bianca Virnig on her decisive victory this evening. Bianca’s experience as a school board member will mean she can hit the ground running on day one to fight for fully funded public schools, affordable healthcare and reproductive rights,” DFL Chairman Ken Martin said. “Bianca’s landslide victory speaks not only to her strong campaign but also to the strength of the DFL message. Minnesotans are ready to elect DFLers who will protect their freedoms and invest in lifting up middle class families. The Republican Party and their allies – who invested substantial time and resources into this race – will have to accept that their extreme positions on banning abortion and cutting corporate taxes won’t get them any further next year than it did tonight.” 

Virnig currently serves on the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school board.
