Fight-shortened DFL caucus to reconvene at U of M's Coffman Union

Posted: Updated:

The Minneapolis DFL caucus shut down by police after a fight broke out at the Brian Coyle Community Center will reconvene Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Coffman Union on the University of Minnesota campus.

"The only business of the caucus will be to elect convention delegates and alternates," DFL Chairman Ken Martin said in a statement.

Wednesday, Feb. 19
Coffman Union Grand Hall, University of Minnesota
Registration at 5 p.m.
Caucus convenes at 7 p.m.

Any member DFL party living in the precinct may attend the Feb. 19 caucus and free bus transportation will be provided between the Brian Coyle Community Center and Coffman Union.

To help educate caucus participants, staff from the U of M's Humphrey School of Public Affairs will prepare and distribute a one-page explanation of how the process works.


The Feb. 4 caucus drew about 300 people as Minneapolis School Board member Mohamud Noor challenges 22-term Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Martin said the fight started over a disagreement about who would serve as caucus chairs. No arrests were made, but Minneapolis police cleared the building.
