Rep. Ellison Wins CD5 DFL Endorsement

Saturday May 3, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS—Congressman Keith Ellison (DFL-MN) released the following statement today after being unanimously endorsed at the 5thCongressional District Democratic Farmer-Labor convention:

“I am honored to have the DFL endorsement for my candidacy for a fifth term in Congress.  I was particularly proud to have been nominated by my good friend and a true advocate for all Minnesotans, Senator Al Franken.  This is a critical election for Democrats.  We know that the American people agree with our proposals to create opportunity for working Americans, such as raising the minimum wage and repairing our infrastructure.  We also know that Democrats sometimes stay at home when a President isn’t on the ballot.  Not this year.  With the help of the DFL’s grassroots supporters, I know we can make this a record turnout year for Minnesota Democrats.”
