Republican Party of Minnesota Having Difficulty Fundraising

Residual Forces:

This one came in as part of an email from a friend.

On another note, [ed.] said he got a call from GOP fundraisers for the special election and he refused to give any money because he did not trust the financial stewardship of the state party. And also because the caller was an asshole, he said.

That person does audit, accounting, and financial work for a rather large corporation here in Minnesota.

For those of you out there who share this same sentiment, I suggest you donate directly to Steve Drazkowski.

Commenters chime in:

I always prefer to give directly to the candidate’s campaign fund with the exception of supporting my local BPOU. This year, I’m also making an exception for the MN GOP House Caucus, which really earned it in the last session.

Agreed - give directly to the candidates….

I have had the same experience your friend had. The last couple of calls I have gotten from the state and national parties have been increasingly hysterical every time we say no. They all throw out the “well you don’t want Franken” line and I responded back (every time) that they need to pull their heads out of their collective behinds and start listening to their constituencies if they want us to give them money.

They just don’t seem to get it.


They need to get a message beyond you don't want Franken if they want to raise money.
