The aisles were crowded and filled with competing political placards during the nomination race for governor at the Minnesota Republican Party Convention in Rochester in 2014.

The Minnesota Republican Party is canceling plans to hold an in-person state convention next month, moving instead to an online gathering in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

State Party Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan said the "completely unprecedented" situation prevents Republicans from gathering as planned. The convention was scheduled to take place in Rochester, just 11 days after the state's current stay-at-home order is set to expire.
