Supporters of Rep. Marty Seifert, the Republican gubneratorial candidate, passed the media area at the state Republican convention Friday, handing out quotations from Seifert.
"Please enjoy these Seifert-isms during today's convention," the flyer said.
The first quotation was aimed at an editorial "urging higher taxes" in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which recently emerged from bankruptcy: "A bankrupt newspaper giving advice to a bankrupt state government is no solution to balance the budget."
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."
