The Republican Party of Minnesota has gained control of the state senate, following the higher turnout 2016 Presidential Election.
They are in stronger shape to take over the state entirely in 2018.
Yes, it can happen.
Recall that President Trump was campaigning hard in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and he was within two percentage points of carrying the state.
Granted, Minnesota has not gone for the Republican Presidential candidate since 1972, but anything is possible. I hope that the state which had Jesse "The Body" Ventura as governor will bring in winning leadership, fiscsal discipline, and limited government in 2018.

The Minnesota Political Refund Program is back! What does this mean? It means you can support the Republican Party of Minnesota and the conservative cause and have it cost you nothing! Residents of Minnesota who are eligible to vote can have their contribution up to $50 per person or $100 per married couple refunded in full by the State of Minnesota. Click here for more information.
With so much at stake in the 2018 elections, this program could not have come back at a better time. Republicans in Minnesota have an opportunity to make history by retaining control of the State House and gaining the Governor's seat putting state Government completely in fiscally conservative control. We can end the era of runaway spending, inefficient Government programs that are putting Minnesota on a path to bankruptcy (just like in Illinois) as well as high taxes and regulations that are crippling average Minnesotans and businesses.
The DFL can always count on the millions from out of state special interest groups but most of our support comes from our grassroots supporters like yourself. Republicans in Minnesota don't benefit from special interest groups, and frankly, why would we want to? The real support and power comes from our grassroots base. Regular folks like yourself who stand for conservative values and getting Government off Minnesotan's backs. If you also stand for these principles, click here to contribute a refundable gift.
According to the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board, Republican supporters utilize the Political Refund Program as way to increase their regular support without cost to themselves 3 to 2 compared to DFL supporters. One reason for that is Republicans actually have greater support from real grassroots every day folks and the DFL has greater support from the out of state and out of touch special interests. Says a lot, doesn't it? But all that special interest money is difficult to beat so that's why I encourage you to make a fully refundable contribution of $50 per person or $100 per couple today!

With your generous support, together we will turn Minnesota red in 2018!
