The dinner will celebrate the history of the DFL Party and pay tribute to the party’s many accomplishments on behalf of Minnesotans.

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement:

“I am pleased to announce that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer will be the keynote speaker during the DFL Party’s 2023 Founders Day Dinner. Much like Minnesota, Michigan has been a powerhouse of progressive lawmaking after Governor Whitmer led Democrats in her state to majorities in their House and Senate. Our two states have since cut taxes, protected abortion access, passed crucial gun safety reforms, and so much more.”

“Together, Michigan under Governor Whitmer’s leadership and Minnesota under Governor Walz’s leadership are showing Democrats across the nation how to run on our values, win big at the voting booth, and deliver real change in people’s lives. I look forward to hearing directly from Governor Whitmer about how she accomplished so much on behalf of Michiganders everywhere.”
