Minn. group wants Donald Trump off ballot

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KARE) -- The Minnesota Democratic-Farmers-Labor Party is petitioning the Minnesota Supreme Court to remove Donald Trump and Mike Pence from the ballot in November. 

In a statement, DFL Chair Ken Martin said “It is apparent that clear errors occurred in the Republican process of selecting alternative electors for getting Donald Trump on the Minnesota ballot." 

The process of getting a nominee on the ballot requires the political parties to provide ten people nominated as presidential electors and the ten people nominated as alternate presidential electors.

The Minnesota DFL party says the Republican party didn't pick alternate presidential electors at the state convention earlier this year.  They say that's a violation of state law.
