The Minneapolis DFL is holding precinct caucuses 7 p.m. tonight throughout the city to get the ball rolling on endorsing candidates running for city offices this year.
Delegates will be elected at the caucuses for City Council ward conventions and the City Convention on June 15. They will have the chance to vote to endorse candidates at those conventions. The City Convention considers endorsements for mayor, Park Board and the Board of Estimate and Taxation. Candidates need 60 percent of the delegates to vote for them to secure an endorsement.
