ROCHESTER, Minn. - Less than 60 days away from the election, Minnesota Republican Chair Jennifer Carnahan is pulling out all the stops to flip her state red. This week she's touring Southern Minnesota to energize her base and get activists fully engaged.
Carnahan is determined her state will win this election - so much so - she's energizing the Med City to do so.
She is confident this will be the year Minnesota will flip the 10 electoral votes for President Trump. It would be the first time the state would give the votes to a Republican presidential candidate - since Richard Nixon in 1972. Carnahan insists we need another four years with this commander-in-chief.
"What we've seen out of the left specifically Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, they really are trying to shift this country from what it was founded on and place a cap and limitation on people on what they can accomplish or can't accomplish and make them reliant on the government and that's not what America's about," Carnahan said.
KIMT News 3 reached out to DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin for comment. We received a statement that says in part: "We deserve responsible leadership during this pandemic and it's clear we will not get that from the Republican Party."
