Pro-Marriage DFL State Legislator Wins Minnesota Special Election Primary in Landslide

 

An update from one of our local supporters in Minnesota. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is basically the Democratic party in Minnesota:

DFL Minnesota State Rep Lyle Koenen, one of three DFL state legislators to vote to put the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment on the ballot, won the DFL primary for the MN Senate District 20 special election by a landslide!

Politics in Minnesota adds more:

Koenen, who is serving his fifth term representing House District 20B, defeated longtime DFL activist and campaigner John Schultz on Tuesday evening with more than 66 percent of the vote. A special election was called in the district following the death of Granite Falls DFL Sen. Gary Kubly, who held the seat for more than 10 years.

Koenen will now head to an April 10 special election, where he will face off against Independence Party candidate Leon Greenslit, and Gregg Kulberg, a Republican from Hector.
