Heffelfinger Reaffirms Commitment to Republican National Convention Review
Heffelfinger Declines Post on Recount Effort
(Saint Paul) — Former U.S. Attorney and RNC Commission Co-Char Tom Heffelfinger released the following statement:
I am committed to a thorough, expeditious, and non-partisan review of the interaction between law enforcement and the community during the RNC. I have realized that taking a leadership role with Senator Coleman’s recount team would interfere with my commitment to the City and the RNC inquiry. Therefore I have informed the Coleman campaign I will not be available for the recount effort.
