“Last night, in compliance with recommendations from the CDC and President Trump, the Republican Party of Minnesota’s State Executive Committee voted to move all BPOU (local party unit) conventions from in-person to remove, teleconference conventions.
“During these trying and ever-changing times, it is important that we continue moving forward and complete party business required of us to endorse candidates, elect Presidential Electors and have a voice at our national convention in August. But it is crucial that while conducting party and political business, we do our part to keep our delegates, candidates, activists and the general public safe.
“We understand that this is going to be a heavy lift for the MNGOP and our local party units across the state, but we are confident that our fellow Republicans will come together and rise to the challenge as we work toward a successful election day.”
