DFL Party Statement on the Minnesota Special Redistricting Panel’s Maps


DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin issued the following statement regarding the new state legislative and congressional district maps released by the Minnesota Special Redistricting Panel:

“I am grateful to Minnesota’s Special Redistricting Panel for its hard work and diligence. The Panel’s collection of public testimony from both individuals and communities across Minnesota was essential to the difficult and meticulous process of crafting state legislative and congressional maps.

“It will take some time for us to conduct a full analysis of these maps, but we are excited nonetheless to have this process conclude and have a clear sense of the political landscape in front of us. Across Minnesota, local DFL Party organizing units will be working overtime to endorse our candidates in new districts and ensure our campaign infrastructure is ready to kick into high gear.

“The DFL Party and our candidates are extremely well-resourced and ready to wage fierce campaigns up and down the ballot in these new districts. We look forward to having direct conversations with voters about the future of Minnesota in the months ahead.”
