MAGA Hot Mic: Minnesota GOP Gubernatorial Nominee Scott Jensen
September 12, 2022
Scott Jensen: “I would try to ban abortion.”
In light of so many Republicans straight up lying about their extreme, anti-choice records, today’s MAGA Hot Mic falls on none other than Minnesota GOP gubernatorial nominee Scott Jensen.
Last month, Jensen made local and national headlines for his desperate attempts to lie his way out of his extreme stances on abortion. But let’s be perfectly clear: Scott Jensen has gone on the record saying that he would “try to ban abortion” if elected governor of Minnesota.
Minnesota Reformer: “In an interview with Minnesota Public Radio, Jensen said he would ban abortions.
‘I would try to ban abortion… There is no reason for us to be having abortions going on…’”
Now, Jensen is trying to gaslight Minnesota voters with a new, cringey ad.
Business Insider: “Minnesota GOP candidate who once said he’d ‘try to ban abortion’ now declares it a ‘constitutional right’ while holding a baby as he trails in the polls”
No matter what Jensen says, Minnesota voters know where he stands — and they will hold him accountable for his anti-choice extremism come November.
