(St. Paul, MN) -- D-F-L lawmakers plan to introduce a bill to give more candidates access to Minnesota's presidential primary after G-O-P leaders decided President Trump would be the only Republican on the ballot in March. House Assistant Majority Leader Jamie Long said, "I think it was really distressing to a lot of Minnesotans when they found out that the G-O-P primary ballot was only gonna have one choice on it." Republican Party Chair Jennifer Carnahan said President Trump is extremely popular in Minnesota and her job is to make sure the state delivers its 10 electoral votes to the president. Long responds if the president is that popular, Carnahan should have no concern about whether Trump will make it through the primary.
