Welcome to the DFL Senate District 58 Central Committee

The basics

  • Senate District 58 includes most of Lakeville, all of Farmington, the northern tip of Northfield and many towns and townships in Southern Dakota County and Northern Goodhue County.
  • Senate District 58 is divided into two House Districts: 58A and 58B.
  • Senate District 58 has 39 precincts. There are 12 precincts in 58A and 27 precincts in 58B.
  • Senate District 58 is often abbreviated “SD58” or “DFL58.” There is also a Republican Senate District 58 organization.

Our elected officials

  • Senate District 58 was represented in the MN Senate by DFL Senator Matt Little until 2020. State Senate terms are four years except immediately following the Census. So there will be an election for State Senate in 2022. Zach Duckworth, GOP, was elected in November 2020.
  • Senate District 58 has two GOP state representatives. 58A: Jon Koznick and 58B: Pat Garofalo State house terms are two years. They were re-elected in Nov. 2020 and will be up for re-election in 2022. In 2020 DFL candidate Erin Preese (43.77%) challenged Koznick in 58A (56.16%)
  • and Sara Wolf (37.97%) challenged Garofalo in 58B (61.95%).

The bigger picture

  • DFL 58 is one of about 100 organizing units that are part of the state Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) party.
  • There are 8 congressional districts in Minnesota. Senate District 58 is part of Congressional District 2 (CD2). There are 12 Senate Districts ( or Organizing Units) in CD2. CD2 is represented in the U.S. House of Representatives by Democratic Congresswoman Angie Craig.
