Disrupted Minneapolis DFL caucus rescheduled for Feb. 19 at U of M’s Coffman Union

The DFL caucus in Minneapolis that was shut down Feb. 4 after a disturbance during registration has been rescheduled for Feb. 19.

The original gathering for Ward 6, Precinct 3 on caucus night ended when police arrived to calm a disturbance between supporters of state Rep. Phyllis Kahn and her challenger, Minneapolis School Board Member Mohamud Noor.

An overflow crowd had come to the caucus at the Brian Coyle Center in the Cedar-Riverside area. The rescheduled caucus will now be held in a larger space, at the University of Minnesota’s Coffman Union.

Convening the caucus will be DFL Chairman Ken Martin, former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, former St. Paul City Council Member Melvin Carter, and Senate District 53 Chairwoman Alberder Gillespie.

Registration will begin at 5 p.m. and the caucus will convene at 7 p.m. The only business of the caucus will be to elect convention delegates and alternates, officials said.
