(Fargo, ND) -- Edwin Hahn says he is still Chairman of the Republican Party in Clay County even though some board members are telling him he is not.
"The Minnesota deep swamp has stuck its heavy hand in our little local republicans group to unseat me as a duly elected chair. They did this just like they did to Trump. They undermined his authority the entire time he was in office," said Hahn.
Hahn says other board members recently held a secret, closed door meeting in which they say they voted to remove him from the position. Hahn says the action was taken against him based on an anonymous letter the board received, which Hahn says contained baseless allegations against him. Hahn is running for Minnesota State Senate District 4. Hahn says he has no intentions of stepping down as party chair in the county.
