Here's another episode from Trump's "I only surround myself with the best people" campaign. It appears that the Minnesota GOP party did not follow state law when they nominated Electoral College alternate electors. According to state law, both the electors and their alternates must be nominated and voted on at the state party convention. Turns out the MN GOP party nominated and voted on electors at the state convention, but forgot to select the alternate electors in the same, required manner. Instead, the state GOP party executive committee appointed alternate electors at a later date and then filed the names with the Minnesota secretary of state just before the required deadline. http://www.startribune.com/minnesot...er-trump-pence-removed-from-ballot/392834361/ I expect Trump's Minnesota campaign chair will be fired, though it would be misdirected anger since the guy was appointed in early August and the state GOP convention where the electors were to be legally nominated was held back in May.
