"The time for game-playing is over. Congress and the President gave Minnesota millions of dollars in funds for election security. We need those funds desperately, since Minnesota was one of the 21 states whose election system was targeted by the Russian government for intrusion. We kept the would-be intruders out in 2016 and 2018, but federal intelligence agencies all agree that those who want to undermine our election system will be back stronger than ever in 2020. All we need is simple authorization from the Minnesota legislature to use those federal funds. We are the only state in the country unable to use those election security dollars, which puts a target on Minnesota's back. The Minnesota House passed full authorization by an overwhelming bipartisan margin. But the Minnesota Senate majority is blocking full authorization, for reasons they won't say. They're playing a dangerous game, and making our system more vulnerable every day."
