Minnesota’s DFL has a new leader.

Ken Martin was elected the new chair of the DFL  today by the party’s Central Committee. Most recently, Martin was the director of Mark Dayton’s recount effort. A veteran organizer, he also directed the campaign in 2008 that led to the victory of the state’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.

Said Martin, who was unopposed:  “I look forward to getting to work supporting our DFL elected officials and candidates, promoting the values of our party and fighting against the attacks on our quality of life by conservative majorities in the legislature in Minnesota and Washington, D.C.”
