DFL Party Statement on Minnesota’s Early Presidential Primary Bid
Today, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin issued the following statement after reporting emerged that Minnesota will not be chosen to host an early presidential primary:
“I would like to extend my congratulations to Michigan and the other early states. I wish them luck in conducting their 2024 presidential primaries. Their success is now all of our success. While I am disappointed that Minnesota was not selected to be an early presidential primary state, I recognize how difficult this decision was and I appreciate all the work that the Democratic National Committee put into making it. I would also like to thank every state that participated in the process of updating and strengthening our presidential primary calendar.
“The Minnesota DFL Party is already hard at work building the infrastructure necessary to deliver our state’s electoral votes to the Democratic presidential nominee in 2024.”
