Senate candidate cites mail mix-up as reason to not have universal mail-in voting
Republican Senate candidate Jason Lewis on Wednesday addressed a recent mail mix-up where a stack of fundraising mail for Gov. Tim Walz ended up in his campaign’s P.O. Box.
Lewis cited the incident as a reason Minnesota shouldn’t have universal mail-in voting for the 2020 election, calling it "a clearly incompetent system."
Senator Tina Smith captured in one tweet- Use a public health challenge to fear-monger people into trusting a clearly incompetent system (USPS) by pushing all mail in voting (and fundraise off of it).— Jason Lewis (@LewisForMN) August 19, 2020
Ask @Tim_Walz why a stack of his fundraising mail was delivered to my PO Box. https://t.co/C72uaZZFhi
Lewis said he will return the mail to Walz.
Lewis is running against Sen. Tina Smith in the November election.
