I would like to clarify a matter which has come up over the last several months — I have absolutely nothing to do with the Carver County GOP Facebook page or any related social media content.

I have received numerous complaints about misleading news and offensive content on the Republican Facebook page, and I suspect these protests come my way because I am a Republican senator from Carver County.

However I have no involvement with these posts. The current leaders of the local Republican Party will do what they do — I cannot change that.

It saddens me whenever and wherever I see social media content promoting mean-spirited divisiveness instead of embracing thoughtfulness and enhanced understanding of differing viewpoints.
