If you really want to make a difference, this is how.
The nomination for governor will have two steps in Minnesota: The Caucus and the Primary
WHAT IS A CAUCUS?
A meeting at which local political party members register their preference among candidates running for office or select delegates to attend a convention. This is where you get to choose your representation at the local, state, or federal levels. Attending a caucus meeting and choosing your leadership is the most important role you have in influencing elections. Important: If you want to make REAL change and make a difference, please show up and get involved. The position of delegate is crucial to picking and choosing your elected leaders. By getting involved, you have the power to make the much-needed change to nominate strong candidates that represent your values. This is how we take our party back and our state back. Caucus takes place in three steps, and you must participate in all three steps to vote for the Rocks and Cows / Greater Minnesota Candidates as the endorsed candidate in May at the MNGOP state convention.
