A proposed recall petition has been filed with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office against Governor Walz. Hamline University political science professor David Schultz says the constitutional bar for removing a Governor is very high.

“The Supreme Court is going to have to find there’s some probable cause of malfeasance and then a vote would be held,” said Schultz. “It’s a process that’s almost impossible to execute in such a way to allow for the removal of someone.”

No Minnesota Governor has ever faced a recall election.
