Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party



The Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL) is a major political party in the state of Minnesota and is the state affiliate of the American Democratic Party. It was created on April 15, 1944, with the merger of the Minnesota Democratic Party and the Farmer–Labor Party. Leading the merger effort were Elmer Kelm, the head of the Minnesota Democratic Party; Elmer Benson, effectively the head of the Farmer-Labor Party by virtue of his leadership of its dominant left-wing faction; and rising star Hubert H. Humphrey, who chaired the Fusion Committee that accomplished the union and went on to chair its first state convention.

Members of the party are frequently referred to as "DFLers." The party's headquarters are in Saint Paul.
