We are on-hand for the DFL Business Conference in Hinckley, which will select its party leadership for the next two years. The candidates have drawn lots and DFL Party Chair Ken Martin, speaks first followed Bill Hamm, and Donna Cassutt. Each is allotted five minutes to address the delegates.
The candidates will draw again for the question and answer portion of the process. Martin was joined on stage with a large group of supporters. Next speaking is Hamm, who was the only person in his support group. He then withdrew in support of the candidates from the Progressive Caucus.
