DFL Statement on Costly, Divisive GOP Primary in CD2


ST PAUL – Today, the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party released the following statement after Joe Teirab announced he would not abide by the GOP endorsement process in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District.

“A costly and divisive primary between two MAGA extremists couldn’t be a better contrast for Angie Craig’s record of delivering bipartisan wins for her district,” said DFL Chairman Ken Martin. “While Tayler Rahm and Joe Teirab are mired in a race to the bottom, Angie will be talking to voters across the district about the issues that matter most to them. No matter which candidate emerges in August, the DFL will be ready to hold them accountable for their promises to rubber stamp MAGA extremism in Congress.”
