When confronted with the fact that the DFL only won nine out of 87 counties, Ellison said that Democrats “won some pretty important counties” in the state.
When confronted with the fact that the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party only won nine out of 87 counties in 2016, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MI), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), said that Democrats “won some pretty important counties” in the state.
Ellison’s implication – that the other 78 counties in Minnesota were not important – was ironic, as he immediately began talking about how the Democratic Party ignored local elections and “blue and red states.”
“We focus on likely voters,” Ellison said. “We need to focus on all the voters.”
Considering Ellison had disregarded 78 counties in Minnesota just 30 seconds earlier, his platitude on “all the voters” rang hollow.
