I attended the Senate District 23 endorsing convention as a delegate and there is misreporting by Rocks and Cows on this issue. Their following statement is not accurate: "To eliminate Lisa as a choice for the Republican senate endorsement and hand the endorsement to Gene the local party declared Lisa Hanson a “criminal” for defying Walz shutdown orders and disqualified her for endorsement"

In truth, the Senate District nominations committee found Lisa to be "qualified with reservations", not "disqualified", and the reason given for the disclaimer was her history of "fleeing law enforcement", not for defying Walz. At no point in the endorsing convention was she declared a criminal by the party. She was treated fairly and had every opportunity to win, she just didn't.
