Dick, Erin, and Michael win reelection!

Congratulations to Dick Cohen, Erin Murphy, and Michael Paymar on winning reelection to the Minnesota Senate and House and becoming the majority in both bodies! Erin’s candidate recruitment and our flying squad contributed to the wide DFL victory, winning the Minnesota House and Senate for the DFL. We also delivered the state for President Barak Obama and Senator Amy Klobuchar, and CD 4 for Betty McCollum. And both constitutional amendments have been defeated. In fact, it could be argued that turnout driven by the very close amendment vote drove the wider victories. Back home in Saint Paul we also won the school levy question. What a great election evening! Thanks to everyone for all the hard work this year. No excuses, now we have to deliver the best government Minnesota has ever seen.

SD64 DFL Flying Squad

In November, we have the opportunity to re-elect Senator Dick Cohen, Rep. Erin Murphy, and Rep.

The SD64 DFL flying squad will help doorknock in those districts every couple of weeks. Our next outing will be on Sunday, July 15. Please email Robert if you would like to join us on, or for future dates.
