The Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party of Minnesota supports and elects leaders who embody the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party and the people of Minnesota. We work to enact policies so that all Minnesotans, regardless of background or political affiliation, have the rights of: stable employment, fair wages, quality education, accessible and affordable healthcare, safe communities, support for their family, and retiring with dignity and security.

Minnesota’s Political Contribution Refund program (PCR) has finally returned! The PCR allows people to have their political donations fully refunded – up to $50 per person or $100 per couple. Every refundable donation to the DFL helps us build up a critical firewall of Democratic resistance here in Minnesota.  Click here to donate

DFL Congressional District 5 (DFL-CD5) is a political party unit organized in accordance with the DFL State Party Constitution and Bylaws and operating under the laws of the State of Minnesota. It is a legal political entity recognized by the Minnesota Secretary of State and the State Board of Elections.

DFL-CD5 encompasses portions of, or the entirety of, twelve (12) state legislative Senate Districts: SD 37, SD 40, SD 41, SD 45, SD 46, SD 49, SD 50, SD 59, SD 60, SD 61, SD 62 and SD 63.

The mission of DFL-CD5 is to ensure that Democrats within the district (the voters, volunteers, activists, supporters and candidates who uphold the principles and policies of the DFL Party of Minnesota) have the opportunity to participate in a fair process of elections to choose those candidates whom they believe will best represent our common values. We believe that party politics is an effective tool for influencing the composition of our legislative, executive and judicial bodies and one that ultimately affects how government policy is created and executed. Accordingly, we believe that our efforts have a direct effect on the Quality of Life for all our residents with respect to social justice, economic justice, human rights and human dignity. Once our candidates for public office are endorsed at their appropriate endorsing conventions, our party organization supports them vigorously with financial aid and volunteer support to help them win elections.
