Sixth, Seventh and Eighth CD DFL to hold winter conference featuring early governor candidates

I pass along northern Minnesota political organizing press releases like this if people send them to me. I would do the same for a GOP event:

DFL Winter Conference to Host Governor Candidates

Several candidates for Governor will be in attendance at this weekend’s Winter DFL Conference to be held in the Minnesota Room at the Breezy Point Conference Center beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday Jan. 31st and concluding at noon, on Sunday, Feb. 1. DFLers from the 6th and 7th Congressional Districts will join with those from the 8th Congressional District to provide this campaign workshop/candidate introduction opportunity to all interested DFLers. Area residents are welcome to attend.

Expected participants include State DFL Chair, Brian Melendez, Associate Chair, Donna Cassutt and State Attorney General Lori Swanson. Candidates for Governor, including former US Senator, Mark Dayton; Ramsey County Attorney, Susan Gaertner; State Senators Tom Bakk, and John Marty; and State Representative, Paul Thissen are expected to appear during the course of the weekend.

Workshops on candidate screening, voter identification and communication will be offered along with other opportunities to share information and ideas. The conference dinner at 7 p.m. will be preceded by a social hour at 6, also in the Minnesota Room. For further information, call 218-568-5530.


  1. Did anyone put Lori Swanson on the spot about her unionbusting activities? I’m still very disturbed by the fact that she threatened not to support unions on prevailing wage issues unless they supported her efforts to unionbust within her own office. I’m surprised this issue hasn’t been discussed more.
