MINNEAPOLIS – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement calling out Governor Tim Walz’s tweet last night:

“A Governor’s responsibility is to minimize turmoil, not fan the flames in challenging times. We pray for the family and friends of Daunte Wright, and hope for expediency in the investigation process.

“For a Governor to lead by casting blame and perpetuating a narrative of an unknown situation is not only irresponsible, it is conduct unbecoming of a Governor. We call on Governor Tim Walz to censure himself if he is not able to practice the discipline needed to lead our state in a way that helps us move forward together.”
