Candidates, Saint Paul Republicans

Meet the Candidates November 20th

Meet the 2022 State Wide GOP Candidates!

Hello Everyone,

There is a great opportunity this Saturday in St. Paul to meet statewide candidates for governor, AG and SOS.  The event was just finalized last evening, but, yes, it is this Saturday already.  The Meet and Greet will be from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm, Saturday, November 20th.  Many of the candidates have already confirmed they will be there and expect all or most to do so by the end of today.  This may be one of the last or last time where candidates are in St. Paul all together prior to the February Caucus Night.  Some candidates may be at this event the whole time, some may have to come in and greet people, speak and run to another event.  So, if possible, it may be good to plan attending for the whole 1 1/2 hours if possible to see and hear from each of the candidates.  That said, if you only have a limited time, please stop in!  Any amount of time will be good.      

The Meet and Greet for candidates was organized by SD67 (Eastside), but done so for all of us in St. Paul and nearby suburbs, not for SD67.  So, whether a BPOU member, Republican or anyone else, please come!  Please invite your friends, family and others who may want to meet the candidates, ask questions one-on-one and hear them speak.  Candidates may have their own table and all will be given 5 minutes to speak.  There will be light snacks and refreshments for you as well.  The event will be held at:  

Hmong Professional Building
225 University Ave. W.
Saint Paul, MN 55103

The building where this event will be held has a wonderful lobby and huge parking lot behind it.  The train and busses do travel in front of the building as well for those who use this form of transportation.  The building is connected to King Thai, which is on the corner of Marion and University, two blocks west of the State Capitol.  You will enter the Hmong Professional Building from the back.  There are restrooms available as soon as you walk in the doors.  The lobby is located as soon as you walk into the building.

Thank you!  We would love to see you stop in.  Consider bringing others too.

Get Out The Vote

A Letter From our MNGOP Chairwoman

Dear Minnesota Republicans,

We are just a week away from the August 11th Minnesota Primary and the importance of your vote and voice matters.

The left has long been positioning to change our election laws and the way we vote – by hiding behind COVID to encourage a system of all voting by mail.  Today, the Star Tribune, the Democratic Party’s media arm, ran this story to highlight, reinforce and encourage voting by mail. Click on the underlined hyperlink to read the story.

An excerpt from the article here: 

Voters across the state have requested 10 times as many absentee ballots for the upcoming Aug. 11 primary election as in the primary election four years ago. As of Friday, about 545,830 absentee ballots had been requested, according to the Secretary of State’s Office. At that point in 2016, there were 25,930 ballot requests; in 2018, there had been about 54,265 requests by the end of July.

What the article does not mention is the enormous marketing investment made into promoting the vote by mail initiative.  From the Governor to the Secretary of State’s office: significant dollars have been spent on  direct mail to voters homes, promotion in local citywide publications and a public relations push statewide.

In general absentee ballot requests would increase this cycle with the onset of COVID-19, but the narrative presented doesn’t give the full picture.

If McDonald’s Corporation spent $0 on marketing versus the $1 billion a year they spend; do you think sales would decrease, increase or remain flat? This is the same concept.

The bottom line is this: the Democratic Party wants to transform our elections to all voting by mail, so they can steal the election on November 3rd.  Watch the video below for more information.

As always, thanks for what you do.  We must stand tough and strong and fight for our country!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Carnahan

Vote Endorsed Republican Candidates on Aug 11! 

This primary season we have several Republican candidates that chose not to honor the endorsement process of our party.  The endorsement process is the voice and vote of our grassroots. This process is what allows the party to stand behind our candidates 100%.

Instead of handling lost endorsement races with grace; most of these candidates place blame on everyone but themselves. Their approach has been vitriolic and full of mud-slinging. Their goal: divide our party and force our organization to spend thousands of dollars defending our endorsed candidates.

It’s important we vote for our endorsed candidates on August 11th!  Please don’t forget to vote!
