A cease and desist letter was sent to the Minnesota Republican Party from the Minnesota State Fair in reference to the people who were holding Trump 2020 flags while riding the Skyglider attraction.

Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan told officials of the Minnesota State Fair, “To be clear, while we appreciate the enthusiasm of Republicans across the state, the Republican Party of Minnesota had no knowledge of the flag/banner drop, does not condone the activity, nor was our organization involved in any way, shape or form with that effort.”

Trump supporters held the re-election flags while on the ride during the first days of the fair, but the warning wasn’t received until later in the week. Minnesota State Fair officials claimed that the flag displays violated their “Booth Rule,” which says “materials may not be distributed by anyone at the fair unless it’s from an assigned space.” The fair also claimed “the display or use of banners or flags by individuals riding the SkyGlider or any other amusement ride at the fair is prohibited as a safety hazard.”

Minnesota political activist Sheri Auclair and other Trump supporters were told by police they would be arrested if they continued to wave their flags, but the warning did not stop them.

Go Minnesota!
