2020 Minnesota Election Results

Patriots,

I have some very good news you can’t afford to miss.

Although the liberals have taken the statewide vote, there are clear rays of hope for the future of Minnesota.

After record-breaking turnout across the nation, Minnesota patriots in many rural and suburban districts have rejected their Socialist state representatives!

Thanks to patriots like you who chipped in to our fundraisers, your Alliance’s hard hitting ads were seen over HALF A MILLION TIMES!

Our ads exposed the radical Leftist candidates who preferred to hide behind cheap words and slick mailers.

And the result of informed Minnesota patriots going to the polls speaks for itself.

Liberty-lovers won a huge victory with Erik Mortensen in House District 55A!

Mortensen is a liberty champion. He signed his Alliance candidate survey supporting 100% of our issues, from standing up for gun rights to opposing all new tax hikes. Mortensen will be a leader for liberty in St. Paul.

Better yet, Mortensen flipped this seat from one of the worst liberals in the Minnesota state house, Brad Tabke. 

You see, Brad Tabke was Governor “Tyrant” Tim Walz’s favorite foot soldier. Tabke backed the unconstitutional lockdowns from day one, and has spent every day of his two years in office trying to ram through his liberal agenda. From supporting a bill to let the government install GPS trackers into your car to driving up healthcare costs through taxes and overregulation, Tabke was throwing working Minnesotans under the bus.

This is all laid out for the voters on this website: www.therealbradtabke.com.

And Tabke hasn’t heard of a tax he doesn’t want to push onto the people of Minnesota. Tabke hiked the sales tax, property tax, gas tax, and tried his hardest to hike the income tax.  

In fact, Tabke even said he would “love” for the sales tax to be renamed the “Tabke Tax” -- and we have it on video!

Your Alliance slapped that clip into a video BLASTING ‘Taxing’ Tabke and broadcast it to voters in Tabke’s district where it was seen over 100,000 times across all our digital platforms!

Finally, your Alliance blew Tabke’s horrid record on guns wide open.


Tabke and other liberals (Republicans and Democrats) backed HF 9, a Gun Confiscation bill that, after a one-sided court hearing, allows law enforcement to knock, or kick down, the door of gun owners to conduct the confiscation. No prior notice needed. 

And your Alliance’s digital ads, phone calls, and mailers made sure Minnesota voters knew the truth.

Mortensen defeating this super liberal is a huge win for Minnesota patriots.

And more good news -- Minnesotans defeated yet another liberal, John Persell in House District 5A! 

North Star Liberty Alliance plastered digital ads across Persell’s district exposing his terrible record on tax hikes. Minnesotans did not like that record at all.

Persell was one of the most liberal members of Minnesota government --and with Tim Walz and Keith Ellison in power that’s saying something!

Persell’s resounding defeat sends a message to every other legislator in what is increasingly becoming a more conservative region of Minnesota: back off from the Socialist liberal agenda or face a big loss at the ballot box.

Leftist favorite Jeanne Poppe ousted by Patty Mueller in 27B!

Jeane Poppe was a member of the liberal hard-core of the DFL and is now on the outs.

Your Alliance exposed Poppe’s abysmal record on tax hikes to tens of thousands of voters in her district, and those informed Minnesotans flatly rejected her for it.

Patty Mueller returned her North Star Liberty Alliance survey backing most of the pro-liberty platform. Mueller’s biggest promise -- to never raise taxes -- is the pledge Minnesotans rallied around, and a one they will not soon forget.

One trend here is clear: Minnesota patriots despise tax hikes.

Liberty-loving Minnesotans won big across the state, but our work is just beginning.

Liberals still carried Minnesota’s statewide elections, even if by just a few points.

And Socialists wait in the wings to push their radical agenda through any opening they can find in the state legislature. 

So stay vigilant, celebrate these victories for liberty, and prepare for a tough fight this legislative season.

Thank you for all that you do.

In Liberty,

Bill Paulsen
North Star Liberty Alliance

Republicans Striking Debt Bill Deal - Time to Act!

I have some good news and some bad news.

I’ll start with the good news: Walz must gain approval from the state legislature to stop his emergency powers from expiring.

This Monday, July 13th, the state government is holding Special Session 2 to vote on extending or halting the Peacetime Emergency powers…

...the powers that Gov. Walz has been using to run roughshod over churches and businesses.

We have other good news like YOUR Candidate Survey that was sent out and due back next week. Here's a quick snapshot:

But unfortunately the battle in the legislature is so hot we need to focus telling these politicians No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers. 

 

CALL AND EMAIL Sen. Gazelka now to tell him No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers:

 

Sen. Paul Gazelka

If patriots like you pressure the House to vote to end these powers the way the Senate did last month, then Tyrant Tim Walz’s power trip will grind to a halt.

These politicians have been getting hammered by your pressure and we can't let up now.

No more laws ‘created’ with the snap of Walz’s fingers.

>>> But like I said earlier, I have bad news.

Republican and DFL Senators are talking publicly about hijacking the special session to push through a massive government spending package!

They want to betray the purpose of this special session to line the pockets of their campaign donors.

       Republican Senator Dave Sanjem said he’s personally been negotiating a $1.35 BILLION Debt Bill deal with the DFL, and DFL Senator Erik Simonson saying a deal on the so-called bonding bill looks hopeful.

Senate Majority Leader Gazelka needs to bring his Lieutenants to heel and say No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers."

        No payouts to campaign donors. No massive expansion of government. No more wasting taxpayer dollars.

So please, contact you representatives and Senators right away and demand that they REJECT the massive spending deal and END Walz’s emergency powers before the voting starts this Monday.

 

CALL AND EMAIL Sen. Gazelka now to tell him No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers:

 

Sen. Paul Gazelka

It’s vital that patriots like you demand Majority Leader Gazelka shut down the attempted hijacking of this Special Session. 

These rogue Senators think the rules don’t apply to them.

        They want to ignore the sole purpose for this special session on whether Walz’ emergency powers should continue.

And they’ll get away with it unless patriots in their district’s make it clear they won’t tolerate politicians who hang them out to dry.

         Sen. Gazelka and the rest of the Senate must do their jobs and follow the purpose of the session by rejecting any spending deal and voting to end Walz’ emergency powers.

So please, contact you representatives and Senators right away and demand that they REJECT the massive spending deal and END Walz’s emergency powers.

 

CALL AND EMAIL Sen. Gazelka now to tell him No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers:

There’s just THREE DAYS until the session begins, so time is of the essence.

Nothing will shut down this deal faster than if the politicians are flooded with calls through this weekend.

Whether they take the calls and emails as they come, or wade into piles of passionate messages and voicemails in their office on Monday, the results will be the same.

Friends, time and again I’ve seen the political class make an ‘about face’ and turn from a bill because their voters demanded it.

But your representatives and senators won’t budge unless you speak out!

So please, contact you representatives and Senators right away and demand that they REJECT the massive spending deal and END Walz’s emergency powers before the voting starts this Monday.

And if you can, chip in $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can spare so we can expose these politicians if they don't stand up for us. (Click HERE to donate)

P.S. On Monday Gov. Walz must once again call the legislature back to St. Paul in a bid in extend his Peacetime Emergency powers -- and burn taxpayer dollars to pay for it.

This is the chance for your representatives to enact the public will and END Walz’s power-hungry joyride.

And it’s also vita we keep up the pressure to end backroom deals to push through massive government spending Debt Bill package while Gov. Walz still holds a vicegrip over the state government.

So please, contact you representatives right away and demand that they REJECT government spending deals and END Walz’s emergency powers.

CALL AND EMAIL Sen. Gazelka now to tell him No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers:

DEVELOPING: Gazelka Pushing To Cut A Deal

Next week you and I will witness a showdown that will be one for the books.

Gov. Walz must once again call the legislature back to St. Paul in a bid in extend his Peacetime Emergency powers -- and burn taxpayer dollars to pay for it.

And the watchdog team at your North Star Liberty Alliance is hearing of another backroom deal by Republican Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka to pass the Debt Bill while the lawmakers are back in town.

That’s why your Alliance isn’t wasting another moment.

When I put out the call to action last month, thousands and thousands of patriots like you answered the call to pressure their state representatives.

Your voice forced the Senate to overwhelmingly to REJECT an extension to Walz’s emergency orders!

Not only that, but Sen. Gazelk’s slimy scheme to pass a massive government spending Debt Bill was cut short by our efforts!

None of these successes would be realized without the energetic and organized voice of the supporters of your Alliance PRESSURING legislators.

Governor Walz and the politicians in St. Paul were forced to bend in the face of public outcry, saving taxpayers from billions of dollars in tax hikes.

Now, this upcoming Special Session will kick off in just one week, on July 13th.

That’s why it’s vital you act to demand an end to Walz’s emergency powers, and shut down the Debt Bill and any spending deals by Sen. Gazelka until Walz’s emergency orders are ENDED.

So please, contact Sen. Gazelka and your representatives right away and demand that they REJECT backroom spending deals and END Walz’s emergency powers.

 

CALL AND EMAIL Sen. Gazelka now to tell him No Deals until we End Walz' Emergency Powers:

Your Alliance is watching the Republican-controlled Senate closely to ensure they don’t betray the public with another attempt at the massive Debt Bill spending package during yet another grossly expensive Special Session.

At the same time, your Alliance is watching the Left side of the aisle closely as the calls to end the Gov.’s emergency powers grow louder and more diverse each day. 

As you remember, last month, we got Democrats in the House and Senate to vote with us to End Walz' Emergency Powers. 

With the Senate already having a bipartisan vote to end the powers, and with support from typically left-of-center members of the House, Walz’s ‘emergency’ powers could come to an end as soon as next week!

But this won’t happen unless patriots like you are generating the heat to stir these politicians into action!

So please, contact you representatives right away and demand that they REJECT backroom spending deals and END Walz’s emergency powers.

You and I have forced the Senate to bend to our will last time in June during Special Session 1.

But only if these politicians know that the people are watching and DEMAND that we End Walz' Emergency Powers will they be compelled to stand with We The People.

It's up to YOU to pour on the pressure to stop the Debt Bill deal and to End Walz' Emergency Powers. 

Keep a close eye of soon-to-come developments on this year’s second Special Session.
