For Immediate Release
October 8, 2019
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding Mayor Jacob Frey’s attempts to silence Republican voices in Minneapolis:
"Last night, Mayor Frey took yet another step to stifle the voices of Minnesota Republicans looking to show their support for our President. This move highlights the fact that liberal Democrats cannot handle the outpouring of support for President Trump, his successes in office, and his message of making America great again, and their only course of action is to silence the opposition. It was bad enough for Frey to say the President of the United States is not welcome in his city, but it is simply outrageous that Democrats are now choosing to trample on the First Amendment rights of Minnesotans. This abuse of power would set a dangerous precedent in what is supposed to be the freest country in the world."
