DFL Party Statement on Brad Finstad's Victory in the CD 1 GOP Special Primary Election
DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement on Brad Finstad’s victory in the Republican First Congressional District special primary election:
“In just the past week, almost every Republican in Washington turned their backs on the people they serve by voting against Democratic bills to lower the price of gas and tackle the baby formula shortage, and Washington D.C. Republicans hand-picked Brad Finstad because they knew he would only do more of the same.
“Representatives Stauber and Fischbach endorsed Brad Finstad because he will join them in blocking progress on important issues, all so Republicans can exploit the pain people are feeling for their political gain. Southern Minnesotans who are struggling with Putin’s fuel price hike and supply chain problems caused by the pandemic deserve better than someone who will not lift a finger to solve those problems like Brad Finstad.”
