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."

Lewis said he will return the mail to Walz.

Lewis is running against Sen. Tina Smith in the November election.
