Minnesota Majority Threatens to Close Shop for Good

Duluth, MN (NNCNow.com) --- Minnesota Majority, a conservative backed organization, sent out a fundraising plea Tuesday threatening to close its doors for good if they do not raise enough money to pay for utilities by the end of the week.

Founded in 2007, the group has backed daycare providers fighting unionization, organized tax-cut rallies across the state, and rose to prominence in 2012 when operating “Protect My Vote”, a campaign arm dedicated to passing the ultimately defeated Voter ID Amendment.

“We've exposed voter fraud and advocated for election reforms,” said Minnesota Majority in an email to supporters. “Some of which we achieved in a very unfriendly legislative environment this year.”

Minnesota Majority has an extensive database of activists that they say is unrivaled. Their income averages $200,000 and $250,000 annually.

However, despite being well known in Republican circles, the group says if they are not successful in raising $20,000 by the end of this week, they will “cease operating for good.”

This news comes during a time when the Republican Party of Minnesota is working to repay more than one million dollars in debt incurred during former GOP Chairman Tony Sutton’s tenure.
