Close One! Donald Trump Barely Makes Minnesota Ballot

Awkward: As of Thursday morning, Republican nominee Donald Trump was not yet on the ballot in the North Star state. There was an issue with selecting the 10 alternate electors that the state GOP was required to submit. By Thursday evening--hours before the deadline--Trump finally made the ballot.

From CNN:

Donald Trump will appear on the ballot in Minnesota, after a last-minute scramble by state Republicans who discovered Wednesday that their nominee was not yet on the ballot.

The party had until Monday to submit the names of 10 electors and 10 alternate electors -- the people who will officially cast Minnesota's votes for president -- to the Secretary of State.

"We just received the last item. We were waiting for a pledge from one of the alternate electors. The filing is complete and the Republican ticket should be listed on our site shortly," Secretary of State spokesman Ryan Furlong said in an email Thursday afternoon.

The fact that Trump nearly missed the ballot was embarrassing for the state GOP, given that several fringe third-party candidates had already secured ballot access before Trump.

Marco Rubio won the Minnesota caucus back in March. No Republican candidate has won Minnesota since the 1972 election.
