Endorsement: Minnesota DFL Endorses Ben Dolan


The Minnesota DFL has endorsed Ben for MN House District 17A


I’m proud to be the DFL-endorsed candidate for House District 17A, representing the birthplace of the Democratic Farmer Labor party itself, Swift County. My hometown of Appleton was home to Elmer Benson, who led the Farmer-Labor Party in its merger with the Democratic Party, working with Hubert H. Humphrey and Elmer Kelm in 1944. Benson himself had been governor of Minnesota as a member of the Farmer-Labor party from 1937-1939. I’m proud to carry on the tradition of progressive, people-first leadership from our part of the state.
