|MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Minnesota GOP Chairman Jennifer Carnahan returned yesterday from Washington D.C. this week after meeting at the White House with President Trump and Vice President Pence as well as other key members of the Trump administration.|
The meetings kicked off with an Oval Office gathering yesterday to discuss state-specific strategies on upcoming elections. With as many as three DFL-held Congressional seats targeted by the NRCC, a gubernatorial race recently upgraded to “toss up,” and an important Senate race in 2018, Carnahan stressed the importance of Minnesota to the White House and Republican National Committee (RNC). “It was important for me to share that Minnesota will be ground zero in helping Republicans build their Congressional and U.S. Senate majority as well adding a Republican governor. That message was well received by the President and RNC,” Carnahan stated.
Carnahan also was able to network with party chairs from nine other states as the group shared advice on best practices in the areas of fundraising, organizing an effective ground game, data analytics, and other party building activities. “The opportunity to meet the President face-to-face and speak with him about growing our party and implementing a conservative reform agenda was invaluable. I am optimistic the President or Vice President will play key roles in helping us win in 2018,” said Carnahan.
