BREAKING: The DFL Party just filed a campaign finance complaint against @JimForMN for illegal coordination with an independent expenditure group.
Here are the highlights ⤵️ dfl.org/press-release/…
An independent, dark money group called Minnesota for Freedom has been running ads lying about AG Ellison's record.
That dark money group is using the exact same person to buy their ads as @JimForMN.
This is *very* illegal. Campaigns cannot coordinate with dark money groups.

BREAKING: this weekend at the @mngop convention, @KimCrockettSOS played a video that portrayed George Soros, a Jewish man, as a puppet master who is secretly controlling Minnesota's elections.
The "Jewish puppet master" is a longstanding and deeply anti-Semitic trope.
The stereotypes @KimCrockettSOS is using to fuel her campaign are centuries old and have caused incredible harm to the Jewish community both here in the United States and across the world.
Minnesota Republicans have chosen their most extreme and dangerous candidate to lead their party in the fall. We can’t allow Scott Jensen to become governor. #mngov dfl.org/press-release/…
Scott Jensen has promised to ban abortion, even for victims of rape and incest.
THREAD: We're demanding @mngop Chair @davidhann root out the dangerous political extremism that's taken over his party.
Time and time again, Minnesota Republicans have cozied up to violent extremists. It has to end. Here's just a few recent examples: dfl.org/press-release/…
Just yesterday, an MN GOP leader embraced the Oath Keepers, a violent, right-wing militia.
Numerous members of that extremist militia have been arrested and charged for plotting and carrying out the attempted January 6th insurrection. propublica.org/article/oath-k…

It is disgraceful that Representatives @JimHagedornMN, @tomemmer, @FischbachMN7, and @PeteStauber continue trying to block efforts to investigate the assault on the United States Capitol. dfl.org/press-release/…
It is abundantly clear these Republican Representatives don’t want to know whether the January 6th insurrection was pre-planned and who was involved in that planning because they are scared of the answer.

THREAD: Today, the second impeachment trial of former President Trump began. Just over a month ago, he incited a deadly assault on our nation’s Capitol to overturn the results of a free and fair election.
Donald Trump betrayed his oath of office and he must be held accountable.
Trump spent months falsely claiming the 2020 election was stolen.
Then, he held a rally the day Congress was supposed to certify the election results. He told supporters they "have to fight much harder” and "get rid of the weak congresspeople."
Then they marched on the Capitol.

THREAD: Today, in honor of Black History Month, we're paying tribute to Nellie Stone Johnson. Johnson was a labor organizer fighting for fair wages in the ‘30s. She helped form the @MinnesotaDFL in 1944 and helped grow the DFL into what it is today: a party for the people. #BHM
Born and raised in rural Minnesota, Johnson learned the importance of organizing growing up: “the least powerful person in the country, understanding collective bargaining, can become the most powerful, and that is what politics is all about,” (1988). #BHM minnpost.com/mnopedia/2017/…

The Star Tribune just revealed that MN Republicans offered a man $15,000 to run as a 3rd party candidate in a tight race in order to "pull votes" from @AngieCraigMN.
Republicans know they can't win on their ideas, so they're trying to trick voters. #mnleg startribune.com/gop-recruited-…
Republicans have been recruiting fake 3rd party candidates across MN, because that's the only way they can win.
Folks are rejecting the GOP agenda of taking away health care & allowing COVID-19 to tear through our state, so the GOP is trying to steal votes using fake candidates.

THREAD: Last night, Senator Roger Chamberlain lied through his teeth about his promotion of a fascist manifesto, so we’re here with a thread of #receipts.
First, Roger called accusations he promoted a horrific manifesto slander and said they'd been retracted. #mnleg
The Minnesota Reformer story covering Chamberlain's promotion of a racist, fascist manifesto is very available here.
Today, Donald Trump Jr. is in Duluth in an attempt to distract from his father's mismanagement of the coronavirus -- and the chaos it's created for MN families and the economy.
Here's what DFL leaders & union officials are saying in response to the visit. A thread.
.@kenmartin73: "What would Trump Jr. know about hard work? He hasn't worked an honest day in his life. What would he understand about sacrifice? The Trump family has sacrificed nothing for this country only for themselves." (1/2)

THREAD: By campaigning in-person, indoors, and without masks, the @mngop & Trump's team are putting lives at risk.
Recently, the @mngop embarked on a near-maskless tour across Minnesota with multiple crowded, indoor events.
This is dangerous and must be condemned #mnleg#mnpol
Here are a few photos from the @mngop's recent bus tour.
They show just how easily COVID-19 could be spread by the actions of Minnesota Republicans. Looking at these photos, you wouldn't know we're facing a pandemic that has killed over 180,000 Americans.
