This was our first election cycle in Minnesota, and though we were on the ground early in 2021, it was still an uphill battle.
While we saw the opportunity for a new trifecta by ending rightwing control of the Minnesota Senate, the House was in the crosshairs of the rightwing, who saw the opportunity for unified control of the legislature.

Our investment and tactics helped to hold the House and flip the Senate to create the first Democratic trifecta since 2014. With Governor Walz’s re-election, Minnesota’s legislative majorities can get to work improving lives.
