Minnesota Secretary of State Ryan Furlong said, "We just received the last item," in reference to the Trump campaign’s paperwork. "We were waiting for a pledge from one of the alternate electors. The filing is complete and the Republican ticket should be listed on our site shortly."
Some Minnesota Republicans feel that Trump’s placement goes against state regulations.
"Last night #MNGOP 'appointed' alternate electors to fix problem — BUT this isn't allowed in #MNGOP constitution — so we have a mess," tweeted Michael Brodkorb, a former deputy chair of the Republican Party of Minnesota, earlier Thursday morning.
Trump suggested last week that he could win Minnesota, something a Republican has not done since 1972.
"If I could win a state like Minnesota, the path is a whole different thing," he told donors at a Minneapolis fundraiser event, "It becomes a much, much different race. We’re going to give it our greatest shot."
Other presidential candidates on the state ballot include Hillary Clinton for the Democrat Party, Evan McMullin of the Independence Party, Darrell Castle for the Constitution Party, Alyson Kennedy for the Socialist Workers Party, Dan R. Vacek for Legal Marijuana Now, Jill Stein for the Green Party and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.
