(St. Paul, MN)  —  Minnesota Republicans will likely hold a meeting October 2nd to elect a new party chairperson.  GOP deputy chair Carleton Crawford recently announced a meeting for that election via email.  This comes after former chair Jennifer Carnahan resigned due to her personal ties with a campaign strategist now federally charged with sex trafficking.  Crawford says the party will move forward with transparency and look to help Republicans get elected across the state in 2022.
