Seven 64B Candidates Visit SD64 DFL Central Committee

We had a packed Central Committee meeting which included introductions by seven candidates of their campaigns for the 64B House seat. Tim Nelson wrote a great summary of the event at The Race for 64B.

We also reminded everyone that the caucuses will be the evening of Tuesday, February 4. The 64B caucuses will be at Highland Junior High School, the 64A caucuses will be at Central High School, and the caucus for Ward 3 Precinct 7 will be at Macalester. We will have many more details on our website soon.

We expect that the SD64 DFL convention will be on Sunday, March 23, but we are awaiting the final permits for Central High School, so there is still a small chance that date could change.

Since we have a contested race in the district, we are anticipating that our caucus and convention costs may be a bit higher than usual, so donations are welcome to help us do the best job possible.

Finally, the Central Committee also approved a resolution calling for an increase in the minimum wage for Minnesota.
