“We have long been saying Minnesota is winnable for President Trump and Jason Lewis for United States Senate this election cycle and the recent MinnPost poll confirms that. Just four years ago, President Trump came within 1.5 points and won 78 of Minnesota’s 87 counties, showing shifting electoral demographic trends across our state.
“Senator Tina Smith’s vulnerability has been apparent all year as most polls show her below 50% and her stance on issues is not reflective of Minnesota’s voters. Polling has shown Jason Lewis constantly gaining on Smith as her numbers stagnate. Jason Lewis has traveled this state and reached out to millions of voters; while Tina Smith has tried to run a campaign entirely from within her home in the metro.
“Minnesotans are realizing that the Democrats are serious when they promise to raise taxes, increase regulations, and defund the police. Bad policy is not the way to win an election and not the way to govern our nation.”
