Jennifer Carnahan running for MnGOP chair

Being the chair of a political party is pretty much a thankless job. Jennifer Carnahan wants that thankless job.

J. Patrick Coolican at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Jennifer Carnahan, who worked at companies like Ecolab, General Mills and McDonald’s before starting her own boutique clothing store, was born in South Korea before adoption by her parents, who raised her in Maple Grove.

She ran for the state Senate in a Minneapolis district where she had no shot at winning but said her performance – she outperformed Donald Trump by 56 percent – offers evidence she can organize communities that have not been traditionally Republican.
