In a bold escalation of its effort to have Donald Trump and Mike Pence removed from the ballot in Minnesota, the DFL Party has taken its argument to the state Supreme Court.The DFL approaches voting in the same way Henry Ford reputedly viewed color choices for the Model T -- you can vote for anyone you like, as long as the candidate is a Democrat. Getting people bounced from the ballot is a proven strategy. Such rules do not apply to Frank Lautenberg, however.
Ken Martin, the party’s chair, late Thursday filed a petition with the court asking it to order the Minnesota secretary of state to strip the Republicans’ names off the state’s Nov. 8 election ballot.
There is urgency in resolving the issue, because early voting will begin in Minnesota Sept. 23.
The petition names Secretary of State Steve Simon as the defendant. It says Simon erred when he accepted a “certificate of nomination” filed about Aug. 25 by the state Republican Party after its Executive Committee met to select and approve alternate presidential electors. According to state law, electors and alternate electors must be nominated at an official state convention.
