MNGOP Statement on Trump’s Speech

“Today, President Donald Trump showed America and the world what true leadership during a crisis looks like.

Governor Walz and Mayor Frey have been largely silent, other than a handful of unhelpful tweets and press conferences blaming everyone, but themselves.  Minneapolis is decimated.  Minneapolis is damaged to a level we never could have imagined.  The destruction caused this past week will unfortunately live in our memories forever. It’s a dark stain on…

MNGOP Statement on Simon push for Mail-in Voting

“As our nation grapples with a new normal filled with stress, anxiety and illness, Secretary of State Steven Simon’s push to change our voting system just adds to the chaos. “Minnesota has a great, no-excuse absentee voting system in which any eligible voter can vote by mail, without any changes to the law, should they choose to do so.
