|MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding Senators Klobuchar and Smith vote to block the COVID-19 relief bill:|
“Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Flint Smith have decided to put politics above the safety and good of the American people. It is disappointing to see two of Minnesota’s elected leaders take shots at President Trump and refuse to pass legislation that would provide assistance for families, relief for businesses and workers, and support for health care professionals, simply to make a political point.
“Minnesota families are struggling and Main Street businesses are crumbling. It is time to put partisanship aside and work together as Americans in this trying time.”
