Kendall Qualls Calls on MNGOP to Pause Convention Process Following Questionable Precinct Caucus Data
MINNEAPOLIS – Over the weekend reports surfaced that MNGOP’s precinct caucus data was full of inconsistencies. Outsider Republican gubernatorial candidate Kendall Qualls issued the following statement calling for a pause in the convention process to allow for the data to be corrected so delegates and alternates are getting information they need to fully participate in the next steps in the process.
“Following the 2020 election cycle, Republicans led the charge calling for audits nationwide to ensure voters’ faith in the electoral process was restored. We stand firmly against the DFL allowing felons to caucus with them. But we have to ensure our house is in order, we as conservatives have a duty to protect elections and provide assurance to voters that their votes are protected. The election data issues happening at MNGOP are inexcusable and open the door for a messy and unfair process where Minnesota voters question the outcome. Fraud and errors are prevalent, there are allegations that supporters for certain candidates are interfering in the process, and there’s missing data from 20% of the BPOUs. It’s unacceptable.
That is why I’m calling on the MNGOP to pause BPOU conventions until this data can be fixed. How else can we as a party claim to stand up for election integrity when there are issues that we ourselves are facing behind closed doors? We need immediate action to dispel these fears. Until we can guarantee full representation from delegates and alternates who ran to be involved, we must pause the process.”
