‘We Could Lose It Today’

DFL Chairman Brian Melendez told delegates that what happens in the next few weeks is critical.

"We won’t win the election today, but we could lose it today," he said, urging supporters of the half-dozen candidates to work together.

"If it is them against us, we win; if it is them against six little groups of us, we lose," the chairman said. "Don’t blow it today by being a jerk to anybody."
