“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 Simon seeks to impose relief well beyond what is necessary to remedy the harms the plaintiffs propose to suffer.

“The decision yesterday is a small step in the right direction, but there is so much more to be done. Another important lawsuit we are now involved in is the NAACP/ACLU’s attempt to use fearmongering as a reason to send ballots to ALL voters, including inactive voters, for the general election. It is crucial we uphold the election laws which were enacted to prevent voter fraud and ballot tampering, and we are grateful Presidential Trump and our national stakeholders are with us on these battles.”
