Davin Sokup

Minnesota State Senate, District 20

Davin will be one of the first trans state senators in American history!


Davin Sokup is a carpenter and woodworker from Northfield, Minnesota. He went to undergrad at the University of Vermont in Burlington, where he lived for nine years before eventually returning to Minnesota in 2016. He started his own small business in 2019 and has been focusing on putting his roots back down where he was raised. Davin isn’t a typical candidate, but he decided to run for state senate because he cares deeply about the area he grew up in and believes Minnesota needs more working-class people in office. If elected, he would be the first openly transgender state legislator in Minnesota and one of the first trans state senators in the country.
