FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Republican Party's endorsed candidate for Supreme Court is pushing back against the party's attempts to keep her away from its State Fair booth.
Michelle MacDonald showed up at the booth on the fair's first day Thursday and was asked several times to leave. Party officials passed a resolution a day earlier that bans her from the booth because of a pending drunken driving case.
MacDonald was asked several times to leave before she finally did, but she vowed to return. She says she's being unfairly excluded and is willing to risk arrest.
MacDonald was endorsed at the GOP state convention in May but has been ostracized since. Party officials say they didn't know about her 2013 arrest.
She's running against incumbent Justice David Lillehaug.
