On the heels of this week’s big wins for Democrats in Minnesota, state D-F-L Party Chairman Ken Martin announced he’s running for a fifth term. Martin says when he ran for re-election two years ago, he had two goals: “Make sure that we win the governorship, and the other was to make sure we defeat Donald Trump. One down, one to go,” Martin says.
Republicans respond they took a U-S House seat away from Democrats in the 8th Congressional District in northeast Minnesota. Unofficial returns show the Republican candidate also winning by a small margin in the 1st Congressional District in southern Minnesota, but a recount is possible.
