Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Pat Shortridge says the party has reached an agreement regarding its lease.
“We have reached a confidential agreement with our landlord, HUB Properties, that will allow us to fulfill our obligations to them,” Shortridge said in a statement. “HUB will request a continuance of tomorrow’s hearing and we expect to have a final agreement in place within a week.”
Boston-based Hub Properties filed an eviction notice in Ramsey County District Court earlier this month because the party owes them $96,000 in rent.
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for 8:45 a.m. on May 1.
Late last year, the party disclosed that it was nearly $2 million in debt.
