Statement from Speaker Hortman on presidential primary

Wednesday, January 29, 2020

St. Paul, Minnesota — Minnesota House Speaker Melissa Hortman released the following statement on Minnesota’s presidential primary:

“The Minnesota House DFL supports increased voter privacy in the presidential primary. However, any change will require agreement with Senate Republicans and Sen. Mary Kiffmeyer — something they have shown no interest in so far. I would encourage anyone concerned about this issue to contact Sen. Kiffmeyer, Majority Leader Gazelka, and Senate Republicans.”
