DFL Party Statement On Failed Congressional Candidate Kendall Qualls' Run For Governor


 Today, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response to failed congressional candidate Kendall Qualls’s announcement of his candidacy for governor of Minnesota:

“Kendall Qualls endorsed and voted for Donald Trump whose policies put millions of Americans’ health care and livelihoods in jeopardy, and now, he is traveling the state pushing extreme Republican talking points in order to divide us. Minnesotans in the third congressional district already rejected Kendall Qualls’s candidacy and I have no doubt it will happen again.  This move only makes the messy GOP primary messier with no benefit to Minnesotans.”
