From the Left Hand Corner: A surprise attack on state DFL endorsement system
As a believer in our two-party system that has served this nation well, I hate to see what is happening to both the Republican Party and our DFL in Minnesota this summer.
Our party endorsement systems are far from perfect, but both provide a process for interested citizens who take the time and trouble to actively participate not only to have impact, but also the opportunity to be viable candidates for office. That is something that very few could otherwise afford to do.
