Sue Jeffers is a leading conservative activist, and Vice President of the Twin Cities Republican Association (TCRA), not as Bernie asserts, the “Libertarian’s Leading Lady.”
Ray Cox is no conservative. His opponent, Glenn Gruenhagen is. Ray’s Taxpayer’s League score was somewhere in the twenties (out of 100 possible) when he was in the House. Worse track record on fiscal conservatism than many Democrats. It’s a shame. Makes me wonder where the Republican Party is going, and if I still want to be a part of it.

Sue Jeffers has questionable conservative credentials and NO Republican credentials.
The committee at the State Convention found Harold Shudlick worthy of running as a Republican but the Libertarian’s Leading Lady, Sue Jeffers, did not make the cut.
Why? Because she was/is not a Republican. The Twin Cities Republican Association is not recognized by the Republican Party (not by the local, state, or national GOP).
As far as Cox: he represented his area very well. The Tax Payers League is an irrelevant entity — they cherry pick votes to try to make themselves seem important. No one listens to them.
I heard you guy, Gruenhagen, as a sore loser and took shots at Cox after the votes were announced. And some kook from La Sueur County pretty much had to be restrained because he was yelling like a blathering idiot.
“real conservatives” — riiiiiight.
