Minnesota Republican Party Chair Jennifer Carnahan says Governor Tim Walz and state Attorney General Ellison are “using every mechanism of their offices to politicize the way people choose to vote.” It comes after Walz and Ellison warned campaigns about complying with COVID safety requirements in the last two weeks before the election. Ellison says:

“It’s health-motivated. It’s motivated by our desire to keep Minnesotans from being sick and to contact COVID, and in some cases die.”

State G-O-P Chair Carnahan responds COVID has upended the country in many ways and “we’ve seen our state under severe government restrictions and limitations at the hand of one man, Governor Tim Walz.”
