DFL Party Statement on Minnesota Keeping All 8 Congressional Seats


Today, following the release of block-level census data, it was revealed that Minnesota will keep all 8 of our representatives in the United States House. DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response:

“Today’s news is a testament to the people of Minnesota’s incredible commitment to civic engagement and democracy. As the state with both the highest census response rate in the nation at 75.1% and the highest voter turnout in the nation, Minnesotans should be proud of these results. We stepped up, fought hard, and retained a seat in Congress that most observers thought we would lose. I am thrilled that Minnesotans will retain their clout in Congress and say in the Electoral College.”
