Minnesota's debt-plagued Republican Party faces an eviction hearing next week after failing to pay rent for its headquarters since August.
The party's landlord filed the notice in county housing court last week and a hearing is set for next week. Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Pat Shortridge told party members in a memo that officials are trying to renegotiate its lease.
The GOP has 21 months remaining on a lease with Hub Properties Trust for space a block from the state Capitol. Shortridge revealed the rent hadn't been paid in eight months.
The most recent federal campaign reports show the Minnesota GOP owes nearly $1 million to vendors. That includes $107,000 to Hub Properties.
The eviction notice was first reported by Politics in Minnesota.
