MN Democrats push to remove Trump from ballot


Late last month, Minnesota residents who looked up a sample ballot online were stunned to find that Trump was nowhere to be found just two business days from the secretary of state's deadline for major parties to get their tickets on the ballot.

Former Minnesota Republican Party deputy chairman Michael Brodkorb tweeted a press release from Minnesota GOP Chair Keith Downey, where he states "the ballot filing was certified by the Secretary of State and properly placed on the ballot".

State law requires political parties to select electors - the people who cast Electoral College ballots following the popular vote - and their alternates at conventions as part of putting a nominee on the ballot.

Democrats in Minnesota filed suit with the Supreme Court to get Republican nominees Donald Trump and Mike Pence thrown off the ballot for the general election Friday.

Even though Trump is not expected to carry Minnesota, the reaction from across the nation that the GOP candidate missed the ballot in a state could spell disaster for the campaign.




To finish the process, the party called an executive committee meeting to select alternative electors to join the 10 electors it had nominated at its state convention in May.

The state Supreme Court in the past has handled election matters expeditiously and decided them quickly. Dems make push to oust Trump from ballot MORE from their state's presidential ballot, according to a new report. "This is violation of state law", reads a statement from the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. He said the party had previously submitted what it had thought was the necessary paperwork a month earlier. Ryan Furlong, a spokesman for the secretary's office, said the office does not comment on pending litigation.

Early voting in Minnesota begins September 23.

The Trump campaign's Minnesota spokesman Andy Post said the campaign had no immediate comment but was reviewing the suit.

Simon on August 25 accepted a "certificate of nomination" filed by the Minnesota GOP after its executive committee met and approved alternate presidential electors.
