Here in the 6th District, we've learned a bit about the importance of the Republican Party endorsement and Party unity.
That's why I - and our endorsed Congressional candidate Tom Emmer - are urging you to vote for the rest of the endorsed candidates in the Primary on August 12th.
You may have seen Tom's email earlier this month reminding you to support Jeff Johnson for Governor in the Republican Primary, along with the rest of our endorsed Republican team, but it's worth repeating:
We're asking you to Vote for Jeff Johnson in the August 12th Primary election.
Jeff is gaining support every day because he is the best candidate to unite the Party and defeat Mark Dayton in November. His common sense conservative message will help carry the entire Republican ticket to victory in November.
Voting has already begun! You can find out how to vote for Tom Emmer and Jeff Johnson today at MNGOP Votes.com

CD6 Republicans need Volunteers to staff the Republican Party booth at the Game Fair.

This event is a lot of fun, and draws in a lot of people.Game Fair is one of the best places to see and hear from vendors and experts in outdoor and recreational sports. If you have never been to Game Fair, its well worth your time.

It runs Friday and Saturday, 9-6PM, and Sunday 9-5PM, on August 8-10, and August 15-17.

Meet new people while staffing the booth, and enjoy the exhibits and seminars before or after your shift.

Directions to the Game Fair can be found at http://www.gamefair.com/directions.html

*We assume we will have to turn in a shift list by Aug 7 with the names of volunteers, like last year. If so, Game Fair will provide badges (free pass) to those on the list. They are to be picked up at Will Call, and returned upon completion of the shift.

Your help is very much appreciated!

Please sign up to work a shift by clicking here.

The CD6 Republicans have been asked to staff the Republican Party of Minnesota's State Fair booth on Sunday August 31.

There are 3 shifts to choose from: 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm, and 5pm-9pm

We'd like 6 people per shift, and are happy to have more.

Volunteers will be reimbursed the cost of a pre-sale ticket ($10) at the conclusion of their shift if requested.

The booth is large, with a nice shaded patio in back. Work a 4 hour shift, meet lots of people, and then go enjoy the fair!

DATE: 8/31/2014 (Sun 9:00AM - 9:00PM)

LOCATION: RPM State Fair Booth

Please sign up to work a shift by clicking here.

The CD6 Republicans, in partnership with BPOUs and the State Party have already opened 3 (updated) FOUR Victory Offices in the District. These offices will play a key role in helping elect Republicans to Statewide, Congressional, and State House seats, but we need your help.

We have eager and motivated staff working full time at these offices, with some great new tools to make calls and collect the critical Voter ID data needed to win. But the skilled staff can't do all the work. We need volunteers!

Here are the locations of our 4 Victory Offices with staff contact info and social media links.

Congratulations to him, his family, and his campaign team for a well run and successful campaign.

Emmer for Congress

Chairman Yurczyk had the following to say,

"The CD6 Republicans congratulate Tom Emmer on earning our endorsment on Saturday.  Mr. Emmer received 76% of the vote on the first ballot.  We appreciate the time and effort he spent travelling the district to meet with delegates and gain their support.

We look forward to working alongside Mr. Emmer to help him spread his message of fiscal discipline to voters throughout the 6th District.  His straight-talk and unmatched work-ethic make him uniquely positioned to earn the support of voters in the Primary and on Election Day."

Tom Emmer won the 6th Congressional District Republican straw poll conducted at tonight’s precinct caucuses. 

“Congratulations to tonight’s winner, Tom Emmer,” said Luke Yurczyk Chairman of the 6th Congressional District Republicans.  “Tonight’s caucuses are the start of a process that will culminate in the endorsement of a candidate at our 6th District convention.  We look forward to carrying the energy of our caucus attendees through the convention season and on to Election Day.  We also want to thank our BPOU volunteers, caucus conveners, and attendees for their hard work in orchestrating this important grassroots process.

With over 2100 caucus attendees voted in the CD6 Straw Poll, a non-binding preference poll of caucus attendees in precincts throughout the 6th Congressional District.  The 6th Congressional District Republican Convention will be held on Saturday, April 12th at the Monticello High School.  Delegates to that convention will vote on which candidate will receive the Republican endorsement in the race to succeed Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. 

Results with 100% of Precincts reporting.

Congresswoman Bachmann announced her decision not to seek a 5th term in Congress this morning.

CD6 Republicans leadership released this statement:

"We thank Congresswoman Bachmann for her years of hard work for the people of the 6th congressional district and her unflinching commitment to conservative principles.   Her voice and tireless efforts will be missed in Congress, but we trust she will continue to be a strong advocate for conservative, Constitutional government. "

Donate to the CD6 Republicans to help ensure we have the resources to keep CD6 in Republican hands.
