Andy Luger Now Endorsed by the Hennepin County DFL and the NE Minneapolis DFA-Link Group!

Did you know that we had more voting delegates at our Hennepin County DFL convention today than the MN GOP State Convention had for their endorsement of Kennedy! (source for the GOP #'s: Minvolved).

Andy Luger received the Hennepin County DFL endorsement for Hennepin County Attorney on the first ballot. The NE Minneapolis DFA-Link Group also endorsed Andy Luger for Hennepin County Attorney at their May DFA-Link Meeting.

You can show your support for Andy Luger on his DFA-Link Candidate page.

On the first ballot for Hennepin County Attorney of 995 eligible votes, which would make 60% endorsement threshold at 597, 994 ballots were cast:

725 votes for Andy Luger (73%)

269 votes for Mike Freeman (27%)

Mike Freeman conceded for the day but stated again that he doesn’t expect a primary for this non-partisan office and will be running for office in November against the DFL and local DFA-Link Group endorsed candidate, Andy Luger.

Andy Luger will need the support of all DFA-Link members to win in November. To learn more about Andy Luger, please go to:

It sounds like most voters will unify behind our endorsed candidates, including Andy Luger, and win elections November. I know that DFA-Link members will be a part of that effort. Please join us today by responding to this invitation to Andy Luger’s DFA-Link Campaign Page.
