Minnesotans 'have had it' with Democrat politics

voter fraudThe leader of a Minnesota-based messianic Jewish ministry says if it weren't for the specter of voter fraud, The North Star State would turn red this year.

Donald Trump barely missed claiming Minnesota to his winning electoral count in 2016, so the president has made numerous visits to the state this year, as there is growing confidence that he can flip the state Republican.

Fox News recently reported that the GOP could pick up a U.S. Senate seat as well, as a new KTSP/Survey USA poll shows Republican Jason Lewis in a virtual dead heat (43 percent to 42 percent) with incumbent Democrat Tina Smith, who enjoyed a double-digit lead in mid-September and led by seven points as recently as early October.

"She's in trouble because five miles of Minneapolis is burned to the ground. It's destroyed," says Jan Markell, founder and director of Minneapolis-based Olive Tree Ministries and host of the "Understanding the Times" radio program. "There were prime businesses that were wiped out in May. Minnesotans have had it with this kind of violence. I've lived here all of my life. It was a beautiful state at one time, and it's been completely destroyed by Democrat Party politics."

"If we could set aside the fraud factor, I think we would see a red Minnesota, absolutely," she tells OneNewsNow. "People are simply changing, and I really believe people are thinking twice. So I think it will be close, and … I think the fraud factor will determine everything."

Markell adds that it is hard to forget the 2008 Senate race in which incumbent Republican Norm Coleman lost to Democrat Al Franken because of what many believe were fraudulent votes.
