Although tempers often fray and party unity melts down toward the end of tense legislative sessions, in the Minnesota Senate Republican caucus the indignation has taken on a newly public nature this year.

Read the tweets below from Sens. Sean Nienow, R-Cambridge, Gretchen Hoffman, R-Vergas and Dave Thomspon, R-Lakeville.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
