'Battle for the soul of our nation:' Minnesota DFLers call for unity ahead of November election

DULUTH - Minnesota's top Democratic leaders stressed the need for party unity heading into the November election, even as fractures in the base were on display Saturday at the DFL state convention in Duluth.

Several hundred activists took buses from the Twin Cities area to protest outside the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, hoisting "Stop the Bombs" signs and wearing pro-Palestinian T-shirts. Inside the convention hall, like-minded delegates pushed to have the party's platform include a call to halt U.S. military aid to Israel and to support a permanent cease-fire in the war in Gaza.

DFL Party Chair Ken Martin said that while Democrats don't expect unanimity on every issue, they must be united this year to defeat Republicans and their presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.
