MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement:

“Since July 4th, Rep. John Thompson has had multiple opportunities to take accountability for his decisions, choices, and actions. Instead of doing the right thing by resigning his position in the State House, Rep. Thompson continues to dig his heels in.

“As the highest level of leaders in the MN DFL call for his resignation, including Governor Tim Walz, and Chair Ken Martin, the responsibility now lies with Speaker Melissa Hortman and Democrat Leadership to hold Rep. Thompson accountable.”
