The following comments by Jay Duggan on Facebook are thought provoking even though I would have said it different:
The legislature voted to revoke Walz’s emergency orders and lost the vote. Why? The Republican leader promised to cave before they even took the vote. The Republican Senate Leader is preparing to sell out his only piece of leverage left to pressure Walz, a $2 BILLION bonding bill with every Mpls DFL wet dream funded, in exchange for…NOTHING. Walz keeps dictator powers, continues to spend the $2 billion federal money anyway he wants, will make a masks mandate and close bars and restaurants again the minute Paul gives him the money. As a “what the heck” bonus prize Paul Gazelka apparently agrees with Walz the entire state is racist garbage and it’s not the Mpls DFL kooks running a crappy city and police dept that killed George Floyd, it’s our racist state and he will pass Statewide Police Reform without a single hearing on how the Mpls DFL marxist commies screwed up their city and police dept so bad that they let the place burn for 3 days and kicked off a record murder spree.
Paul Gazelka supposedly represents the rural counties (Todd, Cass, Morrison, Wadena) west of Brainerd in Senate District 9. Walz lost here. Trump won huge here. Kinda surprising they have a RINO DFL-lite supporter in their Senate seat. HE HAS A PRIMARY CHALLENGER.
Check out http://www.DahlForSenate.com and volunteer, donate, vote to replace Gazelka in the August 11th primary with somebody willing to take the #RocksAndCows to war against the #ExtremeMplsLiberals who control and are trying to ruin our state and ignore everything past the metro skyline.
How did a State Farm Insurance agent paid by State Farm to be a Senator end up running the Minnesota Republican Senate in the first place?
Is the Greater Minnesota way of life for sale now? Not any more. https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fkstp.com%2Fpolitics%2Fminnesota-senate-gop-leader-gazelka-says-deal-close-on-bonding-tax-bills%2F5790524%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C222f06fbc57c4e1248cb08d829b8495c%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637305218757886703&sdata=KK9WzzLxVc%2FfZZ4%2BeEEXfBUpamgk9oQyK43OrN396mI%3D&reserved=0
