DFL Party Chair Ken Martin says People are talking about broadband

The Grand Forks Herald reports…

The leader of Minnesota’s Democrats said Friday he and supporters are optimistic they can rebuild the party despite large losses in the 2016 election.

“Oftentimes after a tough election losses, people are sort of hanging their heads and wondering what is next and waiting for the next election,” Minnesota DFL Chairman Ken Martin said during a visit to the Herald. “What I’ve found as I travel the state is so much energy. People are not waiting for the next election. They are already out there talking to voters. They are already out there fighting. To me, that is a sign of good things to come.”

In a tour of cities, Martin stopped Thursday in East Grand Forks to speak with local political supporters. Topics ranged from proposed cuts to crop insurance by the Trump Administration to trade deals and border issues to access to broadband.

Minnesotans are still interested in broadband, because it’s still an issue in rural area. Politicians are hearing that from the front-lines.
