DFL Strongly Disavows Local Unit’s Endorsement in 12B Race


ST PAUL –Today, Minnesota DFL Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after being made aware over the weekend that the Senate District 12 DFL has endorsed someone who is unfit for elected office:


Ken Martin: “The kind of violent and threatening behaviors that Mr. Hoff has engaged in have no place in the Minnesota DFL party. The Minnesota DFL strongly disavows this endorsement, and I have asked the local unit in question to withdraw their endorsement immediately. The Minnesota DFL will not spend any of our resources on behalf of Mr. Hoff. We all have a responsibility, regardless of party or ideology, to reject violence in our politics – we can and should expect better from candidates for elected office.”
