About Us


Swift County is home to a great history with the DFL. The Farmer – Labor Association joined with the Democratic Party right here in Swift County. The result of that union is the current (DFL) Democratic Farmer Labor Party that we have today. The DFL stands up for working men and women and small businesses through out our great state of Minnesota. The DFL represents a legacy of accomplishing the best in protecting human rights, workers’ rights, and equal rights for everyone. Our business climate (rural and urban) is successful because we respect individual rights, individual freedoms, and we reward hard work. Join the legacy of the Swift County DFL and make a difference in our county, our district, our state, and our nation by supporting equal rights and a platform of fairness under the eyes of our government.
