RELEASE: Kim Crockett Announces Run for Secretary of State to Restore Confidence in Elections
EXCELSIOR, Minnesota – Kim Crockett announces her run to be the next Secretary of State for Minnesota. Kim brings the expertise, resolve, and experience needed to work with the legislature, election officials around the state, and citizens to restore our confidence in elections and streamline business registrations. In addition to her focus on elections, Kim brings a strong business background as a corporate attorney for a national bank and policy expertise on issues important to employers.
“Today citizens across the political spectrum are questioning election results, and asking a lot of questions about how we vote and how the vote is counted. After the 2016 race, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar raised serious concerns about voting equipment. The election of 2020 brought new challenges with health concerns that resulted in a massive increase in absentee voting. Citizens are asking good questions and they deserve a respectful hearing, especially in Minnesota where elections are often very close. Unanswered doubts divide us, robbing us all of the confidence we need to accept election results and focus on governing.
As your Secretary of State, I will work to restore confidence in Minnesota’s elections by enforcing the laws on the books, and working with the legislature and election officials across the state to upgrade our approach to elections. The Office of the Secretary of State should not be a partisan operation, and the administration of elections should not favor one party over another. Voting rules should be easy to understand and ballot security should be treated as a sacred duty.
Americans are exhausted by damaging political divisions and the dominant role of politics in our lives. Wouldn’t it be nice if after Election Day, Minnesotans at least agree that the election was fair and secure? Let’s work together to make that happen.”
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
Kim also understands small businesses are the backbone of our Minnesota economy. As Secretary of State, she will work to simplify the process for establishing a new business and advocate for policies which allow them to thrive.
Kim looks forward to listening to voters across the state and sharing her vision for the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office. She will seek the Republican Party Endorsement.
