Cold Spring Representative Demuth to Lead MN House Republicans

(St. Paul, MN) — State Representative Lisa Demuth of Cold Spring will serve as Minnesota House Republican minority leader next year. Demuth will become the first woman of color to lead a legislative caucus. She says the G-O-P shares some legislative priorities with the D-F-L majority including reducing taxes on Social Security and funding public safety. Demuth wouldn’t comment on D-F-L proposals to strengthen abortion protections but did tell reporters, “we are a pro-life caucus.” She is calling for a “team” approach among G-O-P House members.
