Biden Worried About Minnesota, Tina Smith Will Own His Record of Tax Hikes, Outsourcing, and Disturbing Behavior/Statements

EAGAN, Minn. — U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement calling on Senator Tina Smith to clarify whether she agrees with the Joe Biden’s dangerous policies and rhetoric.

“It appears the Biden campaign is starting to realize what we have known for a long time: Minnesota is in play in 2020. While the Trump and Lewis campaigns have been on the ground in Minnesota for a year, Biden’s team is only just now starting to pay attention to Minnesota, putting a trio of staffers on the ground in the state. Well, I’ve got news for Biden: it’s going to take a lot more than three people to offset the serious momentum the Trump campaign has here.

As the Biden campaign begins to have a presence in Minnesota, now would be a good time for Senator Tina Smith to come clean on what she agrees with Biden on. She eagerly endorsed Biden a couple months ago and then they both retreated to their basements, avoiding addressing some of Biden’s worst, anti-Minnesota policies. Biden opposes mining on the Range, is promising to raise taxes on the middle class, refuses to be tough on China, and supports continued outsourcing that is taking away good-paying American jobs. Additionally, Biden has a long and disturbing track record of behavior which raises serious questions about his fitness to serve as Commander in Chief. And now he is on the record saying he supports defunding the police.

The reality is Biden is entirely out of touch with what Minnesotans want and Tina Smith needs to say if she stands with Biden. Will she un-endorse Joe or will she double down on in support of these dangerous policies and rhetoric? Minnesotans deserve an answer.”
