Minnesota DFL Statement on Tom Emmer

ST PAUL – Today, Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after Tom Emmer’s short-lived bid for Speaker of the House ended in failure:

“The fact that Tom Emmer was not far right enough for House Republicans is a sign of just how extreme the Republican Party has become,” said DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin. “It appears that even if you support a total ban on abortion with no exceptions, you aren’t allowed to lead the Republican Party unless you support overturning a presidential election. We don’t know who will emerge as Speaker from the chaos that Republicans have plunged Washington into – but we know that they will have to kiss the ring of Donald Trump and the MAGA movement.”

Emmer has supported a total ban on abortion, with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
