MNGOP Statement on Smith Endorsing Omar

“It was surprising to see Senator Tina Smith endorse Congresswoman Ilhan Omar  yesterday. Given Omar’s history of anti-Semitic remarks and recent calls to abolish capitalism and eliminate the police, Senator Smith should have shown better judgment. “It’s time to ask: Do the other Democrats like Collin Peterson, Angie Craig, and Dean Phillips also support Congresswoman Omar too? “Politics is politics, but Omar’s dangerous rhetoric crosses the line.”   For Immediate Release July 22, 2020 Contact: Jack Tomczak 612-306-3076 jwt@mngop.com MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding Senator Tina Smith endorsing Congresswoman Ilhan Omar yesterday

MNGOP Statement on Reopening Schools

“The more we learn about COVID-19, the more it becomes apparent that we have done a huge disservice to our children by shutting down schools and isolating them in their homes. Virtual learning has already had a negative impact on the social, mental, and physical well-being—we can’t let this continue into the fall. “It is disappointing that Senator Tina Smith is content to sit idly by while Democrats refuse to announce a plan for allowing children to return to school this Fall. Her continued silence on the matter is troubling. “This transcends politics. All parents want their kids to be…

MNGOP Statement on Liberal-led Lawsuits

“Liberals in Minnesota and around the country know they are going to have a tough time on Election Day 2020, so they are attempting to manipulate our elections through lawsuits instead of legislation. “From ballot harvesting, extending deadlines to allow more time for Democrats to ‘find’ ballots, and wasting taxpayer dollars sending ballots to all voters, it is imperative that we act now to prevent election interference and intimidation. “Yesterday, a judge rejected the consent decree between the League of Women Voters and Secretary of State Steve Simon. In his ruling, the judge stated that the proposed decree agreed upon by…

MNGOP Statement on Fairness Hearing Continuance

“This morning, the Republican Party of Minnesota, RNC and Trump Campaign requested a continuance for the fairness hearing scheduled today in strong objection to the proposed consent decree. We are pleased that this continuance was granted, allowing us to intervene in this case where the League of Women Voters and Secretary of State Steve Simon are attempting to change election laws through litigation rather than legislation. “Minnesota Democrats have made it clear that their negotiations at the State Capitol are not being done in good faith, with Simon circumventing the legislative process to manipulate Minnesota election laws. It is beyond concerning to…

MNGOP Statement on Democrat Abuse of Power

“This week, Secretary of State Steve Simon took a page out of Governor Walz’s playbook by subverting the legislative process to manipulate Minnesota election law to benefit the Democrats. In one case, the judge ordered a fairness hearing to determine third parties are not unreasonably impacted; and in the other, the judge signed off on this misuse of power by Secretary Simon and the Democrats. “There is a reason a witness signature is required when voting by absentee ballot – to prevent fraud. It is unconscionable that Secretary Simon and Governor Walz have chosen to go around the legislature – which…

MNGOP Statement on Democrat Power Grab

“For nearly 3 months, under emergency powers, Governor Walz has been able to rule by the stroke of a pen and avoid the legislative process that this country was built on. Today, the Democrat-led House voted against restoring the proper process of governing, allowing Walz unilateral power for another 30 days. “These sorts of measures are not meant to be long-term ways of operating, and it is disappointing that Minnesota Democrats are abusing the power granted under peacetime emergency order. Once again, our opponents have shown that they will stop at nothing to absorb and grab as much power as…
