“This morning, the Republican Party of Minnesota, RNC and Trump Campaign requested a continuance for the fairness hearing scheduled today in strong objection to the proposed consent decree. We are pleased that this continuance was granted, allowing us to intervene in this case where the League of Women Voters and Secretary of State Steve Simon are attempting to change election laws through litigation rather than legislation.
“Minnesota Democrats have made it clear that their negotiations at the State Capitol are not being done in good faith, with Simon circumventing the legislative process to manipulate Minnesota election laws. It is beyond concerning to see what lengths the Democrats are willing to go to in order to win in November.
“Today, we made it clear that the Republican Party of Minnesota, RNC and Trump campaign will not stand for the Democrats’ tactics. We must move full speed ahead to prevent the liberal’s attempts to fundamentally alter our elections through the courts rather than on the campaign trail.”
