Minnesota House DFL Announces Record-Breaking Fundraising Numbers

Jan 31 2020

ST. PAUL, MN - The Minnesota House DFL announced today record-setting fundraising numbers for 2019. The campaign ended 2019 with $1,603,626 raised and $1,158,020 cash on hand - the most money ever raised by a legislative party unit in a non-election year.

“Momentum is on our side,” said Melissa Hortman, Speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives. “Our record-breaking fundraising numbers reflect that Minnesotans are tired of President Trump and Republicans who consistently work to divide us based on what we look like, where we’re from, or where we live.  The Minnesota House DFL will keep working until our bold, progressive vision for a Minnesota that works better for everyone is a reality.”  

“We are excited by the surge of small-dollar donors who supported us this year,” said Ryan Winkler, Majority Leader of the Minnesota House of Representatives. “Minnesotans value our shared vision and recognize the importance of a forward-looking majority in the Minnesota House.”
