Left-Wing State Senator Resigns

Senator Kelly Morrison (DFL - SD 45) announced her early departure from the Minnesota Senate on Thursday. She is the Democrat nominee for US Congress, hoping to succeed retiring Congressman Dean Phillips. Governor Walz has called for a special election to take place on November 5th.

Morrison is a far-left Democrat who helped pass some of the most extreme legislation of 2023. She was a cosponsor on the “no restrictions” abortion bill (SF 1) and the mandated firearm storage bill (SF 5217). Of course, she was also a reliable vote for all the other extreme legislation passed. That includes making Minnesota a transgender “sanctuary state,” passing new sales taxes, the unconstitutional red flag gun law, and the overreaching paid medical leave legislation.

It should also be noted that Morrison has defended her Democrat colleague and alleged burglar, Senator Nichole Mitchell. She refuses to call for her resignation.

Morrison will face off against Republican Tad Jude in the November election to replace Phillips. Meanwhile, the special election to replace her in the Senate is already taking off. Right now, Democrats hold a narrow 1-seat majority. If Republicans are able to succeed, control of the Senate will flip.

The filing period will be open on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week. As of writing, no Republican candidates have announced. On the Democrat side, former Senator Anne Johnson Stewart announced she will run.
