Hello Sally Jo.

I appreciate your commentary and read here as often as I can. I'm wondering if you would expand upon this statement you made in this post: "The residents of SD26 are the ones who will suffer from not having equal access to the candidates in this race."

How is this the case?

Also, how many delegates/alternates were present at the DFL endorsing convention?

Thank you!

You'll have to ask the MN AFL CIO to explain that statement, as it originated with employees of the Federation. The federation's contact numbers are readily available online.

Delegate numbers at either convention is irrelevant to the topic of this post, which concerns the policies each local party adopted toward admitting interested members of the public.

The local DFL admitted anyone interested in attending; the local GOP decided to restrict attendance by non-delegates.

Usually the term 'press release' means released to the press. But nobody else seems to have the message from Chairman Melendez. Are you sure it wasn't an email to you alone?

I received the press release from DFL Communications director Kristin Sosanie, so your question is best directed to her, as I do not have access to the DFL's press list.

All DFL press releases do go out to the state central committee elist, and a friend on the state central committee said that this press release was on that elist.

Should you wish to receive DFL press releases as a conservative blogger, or have questions about their distribution, please contact Ms. Sosanie.

If you want to become a member of the DFL state central committee and thus receive press releases though that additional avenue of distribution, I think that you'll first have to resign as chair of the Steele County Republicans, caucus with the DFL on February 2, and get elected to the appropriate local party office.

Hope these suggestions help.
