ST PAUL – Tonight, November 16, Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after Bianca Virnig won the primary and became the Democratic nominee in the special election for Minnesota House District 52B. Virnig currently serves on the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school board.

“Bianca Virnig has devoted her career to giving back to our public schools and the families they serve,” said DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin. “When she gets to the Legislature, Bianca will fight for fully funded public schools, for more affordable childcare, and against corporate greed.
