DFL Statement on Gazelka’s Running Mate


Today, Friday, April 22, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after Paul Gazelka announced his pick for lieutenant governor:

“Paul Gazelka wants to roll back abortion rights and cut taxes for the wealthiest Minnesotans, so it’s no surprise he chose a running mate who shares his agenda,” said Martin. “Mary Giuliani Stephens wants to cut corporate taxes and estate taxes for millionaires while opposing minimum wage increases. Minnesota can’t afford to elect a gubernatorial ticket that will fight for their ultra-wealthy friends at the expense of working families.”

Giuliani Stephens lost her bid for governor in 2018 and her state Senate campaign in 2020.
