Republicans, Trump campaign try to tamp down Minnesota ballot panic
After hours of ringing alarm bells in national GOP circles over whether Donald Trump is in danger of not getting on Minnesota's presidential ballot, the Trump campaign says everything is in working order and voters will have a chance to cast their ballot for the brash tycoon in November.
As of this morning, Donald Trump's name did not appear on the sample ballot on the website of Secretary of State Steve Simon.
Michael Brodkorb, a former GOP political operative and Star Tribune blogger, reported on Twitter last night that the Republican Party of Minnesota had failed to properly submit the name of its presidential and vice presidential candidates, as well as electors and alternate electors for the Electoral College. The deadline for submission is Monday August 29.
