Sharp exchanges on email and Twitter show a significant rift within the Minnesota Republican party over the recently-passed stadium bill.
Rep. Mary Kiffmeyer, R-Big Lake, sent an email to supporters suggesting that the stadium bill was "full of pork" and "forced through," KSTP reported.
Rep. John Kriesel responded with several emails and tweets slamming Kiffmeyer's stance, including one tweet where he suggested that he'd "take out a second mortgage on his home" to donate to whomever is running against her.
'U' Professor Larry Jacobs tells KSTP that this public debate does exposes a 'remaking' of the Republican party that is going on at the moment. Though, Jacobs said the harsh words will not likely have much of an impact on the elections in November.
KSTP has a write-up.
