The Minnesota Republican Party, struggling with financial problems in recent months, is now facing eviction from its headquarters. Though for the moment, the party is assuring the public that it will be able to negotiate a settlement without being thrown out.
Last year, the party replaced its previous chairman Tony Sutton due tomounting debt of nearly $2 million — including over $700,000 from the 2010 gubernatorial recount, which most observers thought the party never had any significant chance of winning — bringing in the new chairman Pat Shortridge to clean up. As Politics in Minnesota now reports, the party sent a notice to activists late last week, informing them of a new problem.
