Bakk fallout: 'Sad day for rural Minnesota'


February 4, 2020

Calling it alternately “a new day” and “a different day,” Republican leadership rushed to fill a void Monday, Feb. 3, following the weekend’s ouster of Minnesota state Sen. Tom Bakk as a Democratic-Farmer-Labor legislative party leader.

“The Democrats have turned their backs on you,” Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, said in a Facebook video geared toward Iron Range voters. “I want you to know and I want it to be crystal clear that when they threw out Tom Bakk as minority leader ... for someone in the Cities, it's a different day. So I want you to know I have your back up on the Range.”
