Last week, we reported on a bizarre situation occurring in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District that is resulting in postponing the general election to February 9th. With Legal Marijuana Now party nominee Adam Weeks unexpectedly passing, under Minnesota election law, the election is postponed if a major party candidate dies within 79 days of the general election. Surprisingly, under Minnesota election law, the Legal Marijuana Now party is classified as “major.”
Freshman Rep. Angie Craig (D-Eagan) on Friday sent a signal that she may be contesting the law. The official Secretary of State’s public position is that ballots cast in the 2nd District Congressional race on November 3rd will be discarded and not counted. Ms. Craig, in a message to supporters, instructed them to go ahead and vote in the regular general election as usual. Expect further action to occur shortly regarding this unique situation.
