This piece is part of Twin Cities Daily Planet’s series covering the 2018 elections season. Every year we’re moving towards a possibility of a more diverse legislature. And with it, we hope comes increased opportunities for communities historically shut out of political processes and power to imagine and enact policies to create a Minnesota that benefits all its constituents.

Tuesday night, several of the DFL candidates, and their supporters including St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, gathered to watch the returns and celebrate their work – and wins – at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel in downtown, photographed by Kelechi Uchegbu.
