This is getting good. The Minnesota GOP endorsed candidate for Supreme Court, Michelle MacDonald, could be getting ready for a fight Friday Morning at the Minnesota State Fair over access to the official Republican booth reserved for endorsed candidates.

From Politics.MN

MacDonald was informed this afternoon about the decision by Keith Downey, the chairman of the  Republican Party of Minnesota. MacDonald was banned from the fair booth by an e-mail vote conducted by members of the Republican Party of Minnesota’s State Executive Committee in the last 24 hours.

The vote to ban MacDonald from the Republican Party of Minnesota’s fair booth was confirmed by multiple members of the executive committee.

MacDonald has an upcoming trial next month after being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and resisting arrest in 2013. MacDonald was also ticketed earlier this month by the Minnesota State Patrol on Interstate 94 in Monticello, for violating conditions of her limited license to drive.

Here is a previous Daily Kos story on MacDonald famously waving a bible during her GOP Convention speech. (Video included)

Per Politics.MN- MacDonald still will plan on entering the GOP booth. If she does, she could face arrest according to sources.

She is facing Democrat David Lillehaug. The State DFL Party does not endorse Supreme Court nominees.

Grab the pronto pups and Sweet Martha's Cookies. I will update if anything happens Thursday on the first day of the Minnesota State Fair.  This is another headache for the Minnesota GOP, 2 weeks after Deputy Minnesota GOP Chair Chris Fields made national news for his stupid tweet and fruitless defense of himself while pimping his governor candidate in response to someone's heartfelt tweet mourning the passing of Robin Williams See my previous diary on Deputy Chair Chris Fields

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
