DLCC Unveils Minnesota Spotlight Candidates

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee announced 20 Spotlight candidates in Minnesota, where Democrats only need to pick up two Senate seats to turn the legislature blue and solidify another Democratic trifecta. Democrats are poised to flip the Senate and make gains in the Democrat-controlled House this year thanks to early investments in the state and impressive Democratic recruitment. 

“This is the first time the Minnesota Senate is on the ballot since Trump’s election, and this lineup of stellar candidates and legislators will help us flip it blue in November,” said Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Jessica Post. “Democrats are fresh off of flipping the House in 2018, so the momentum is on our side this year. We look forward to working with these candidates to win big across the state — giving Democrats another trifecta.”

Meet the veterans, small business owners, educators, and community advocates who will keep the House and flip the Senate blue this year:

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is the official Democratic organization dedicated to winning state legislative seats. Earlier this year, the DLCC unveiled its unprecedented $50 million campaign to “Flip Everything” this November. Since Trump’s election, the DLCC and state partners have flipped over 450 seats and 10 chambers from red to blue.
