DFL Party Statement on Doug Wardlow’s Disqualifying Fundraiser with Mike Lindell


Last night, it was revealed that Doug Wardlow is hosting a fundraiser with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who infamously urged Donald Trump to use the United States military to forcefully stay in power by invoking the Insurrection Act and declaring martial law.

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement: 

“If it was up to Mike Lindell, the United States would be a military dictatorship, not a democracy. The fact that Doug Wardlow would host a fundraising event alongside Lindell, an honest-to-goodness traitor to American democracy, should completely disqualify Wardlow from serving as Attorney General. Before we are Republicans or Democrats, we are Americans, and the sanctity of our democracy must be above partisan politics.”
