Brodkorb quits position as MNGOP Deputy Chair

Minnesota Republican Party Deputy Chair Michael Brodkorb is resigning his position.

Brodkorb announced that he’s leaving his position as Deputy Chair because he agreed to serve as an adviser to State Senator Mike Parry’s campaign for Congress. Brodkorb said party bylaws bar a party official from backing a candidate prior to an endorsement.

He said he couldn’t do both and decided that Parry’s campaign is important enough to leave as Deputy Chair. He said he’s worked with Parry since Parry ran for the Minnesota Senate in a special election in 2010.

“There would not be a lot of candidates that I would do this for but Sen. Parry is one that I would,” Brodkorb said. “I’m honored to do it.

Parry announced last week that he’s challenging Democrat Tim Walz in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District. Brodkorb, who will serve as a volunteer adviser to Parry’s campaign, will keep his job as spokesman for the Minnesota Senate Republican Caucus.

    Just a reminder to any pledgers against no-tax pledgers. Parry has signed away a substantial part of his legislative duties to Grover Norquist. Unwillingness to do the job should be good reason to show him the door.

    Taxation without representation = Brodkorb will continue to bleed the Taxpayers of Minnesota for a big check, while “donating” his services to the most Radical Right member of the MN Legislature.

    FIXED!!!

    “Just a reminder to any blue doggers in CD1. Walz has signed away a substantial part of his legislative duties to Nancy Pelosi. Unwillingness to do the job should be good reason to show him the door.”

    Pity he won’t be around to share in the joy of the 2012 legislative session and elections now that Minnesotans are beginning to receive their property tax statements.

    Good timing!

    Wasn’t Mark Kennedy the last candidate he consulted for?
