Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota granted MNGOP Affiliate Status

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA - The Republican Party of Minnesota voted to approve the Minnesota Chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLCMN) as an official party Affiliate at the semiannual meeting of the State Central Committee on Saturday. The RLCMN is the first chapter to be added as an Affiliate since 2005.

"Accepting the RLCMN as an affiliate group sends the message that the Minnesota GOP is truly the party that stands for limited government, individual rights and free markets," said David FitzSimmons, chairman of the RLCMN. "That message resonates with the many Minnesotans who feel the party and the state have moved away from those core principles. Like other affiliate groups, the RLCMN offers a path into the Republican Party for people who believe in our principles but haven't thought of themselves as Republicans."

The Republican Liberty Caucus is a national organization that advocates for public policies that restore liberty, not restrict it; shrink government, not expand it; reduce taxes, not raise them; abolish programs, not create them; promote the freedom and independence of citizens, not the interferences of government in their lives; and observe the limited, enumerated powers of our Constitution, not ignore them. The Minnesota Chapter was chartered in 2003. It has experienced triple digit growth in the last year as more conservatives and independents have become concerned about the expansion of government into the private sector.
