DFL Party Statement on Jeff Ettinger’s Victory in the CD 1 DFL Party Special Primary Election
DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement on Jeff Ettinger’s victory in the DFL Party First Congressional District special primary election:
“Jeff Ettinger is a proven leader with deep ties to Southern Minnesota who knows how to cut through nonsense, tackle problems, and deliver results for Minnesota families. While Republicans turn their backs on Southern Minnesota by voting against bills to lower the price of gas and tackle the baby formula shortage, Ettinger will work hard to build solutions that work for all Minnesotans.
“As CEO of Hormel Foods, Ettinger created thousands of good-paying jobs, and as a member of Governor Walz’s Council on Economic Expansion, Ettinger helped grow Minnesota’s economy and bring our unemployment rate to a record low. Minnesotans need an accomplished leader like Jeff Ettinger fighting for us in Congress.”
