DFL Responds to Donald Trump’s Endorsement of Kim Crockett


Today, after Donald Trump endorsed Kim Crockett for Secretary of State, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin issued a statement condemning Crockett for receiving the support of a man whose lies about a stolen election and incited an insurrection against the United States government.

Donald Trump endorsed Kim Crockett via a Truth Social post this morning, saying:

A strong and wonderful woman named Kim Crockett is running, as the Republican Nominee, for Secretary of State in Minnesota, a State where Election Fraud is rampant, but where nothing is done about it or, more importantly, to FIX IT. Kim will get to the bottom of that, and so much else. It’s time we had a smart and dedicated fighter in that very important position. Kim Crockett has my Complete & Total Endorsement. She will not let you down!!!

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin issued the following statement:

“Just like Donald Trump, Kim Crockett is spreading dangerous lies about election fraud that undermine faith in democracy and tear at the fabric of our society. Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him, claims which Crockett has echoed, directly led to a violent attempt to overthrow the United States government. It is more important than ever that we do not allow one of Donald Trump’s lackeys into office to continue attacking the legitimacy of our elections and spreading conspiracy theories that incite political violence.”
