Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent’s Statement on Formation of Independent Caucus

SAINT PAUL, MN— Today, after Senators Tom Bakk and Dave Tomassoni announced their departure from the Senate DFL caucus, Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent released the following statement:

“The Senate DFL caucus includes a broad spectrum of views, especially as the only senate caucus with members from urban, suburban, and greater Minnesota communities, but it does not stretch as far as those who wish to function outside of our values as a caucus,” said Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent. “The Senate DFL is focused on working hard to get this pandemic under control, get Minnesotans back to work and school safely, and eradicate our state’s horrific racial disparities. We appreciate their service and look forward to working on behalf of all Minnesotans with all of our colleagues in the future.”
