2020 is already knocking on our door. The DNC announced the debate schedule for the presidential primaries, beginning in the summer of 2019. Candidates are beginning to declare their intentions to run. And the MN Secretary of State has begun to share possibilities for how the primary might be conducted. All this as the DFL State Constitution Committee wraps up work on the 2019–2020 Call, the governing document for how senate districts like ours should time and run their caucuses and conventions. The preparations for 2020 are officially underway.
Everyone can remember the 2016 caucuses, in which Senate District 66 and Senate District 42 both swamped the Roseville High School. 2018 saw record turnout as well, with one of the highest attendance rates of a midterm election. Given the current political climate, we don’t expect 2020 to be any different. Whether you’re coming to support an issue through a resolution, to support a candidate by becoming a delegate, to catch up with neighbors and friends, or to get involved with your local party unit, we want you to be able to be there. Therefore, it’s critical that we hear from DFLers like you to help us plan the best possible caucuses. To that end, we’ve created a survey to hear from neighbors like you.
