White Nationalist Posters Put Up In St. Cloud Area

Facebook Twitter

01/18/2018 - 12:00 PM

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (AP) - Police in St. Joseph have removed some white nationalist posters put up along main roads in the city.

Residents report seeing at least a dozen posters displayed prominently on utility poles Wednesday, including some that said "Unapoligetically White," misspelling the word unapologetically. Similar posters have been seen recently in St. Cloud.

St. Joseph Police Chief Joel Klein says signs are not allowed on power poles or in the right of way, so officers have removed them. The St. Cloud Times says the posters had a logo and the name of a group called St. Cloud State White Student Union.

St. Cloud State University spokesman Adam Hammer says the group is not a registered student organization, nor has there been any attempt by the group to register.

 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer says he'll seek re-election to Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District, turning aside any possibility of another run for governor or for the Senate seat currently held by Democrat Tina Smith.  

The Republican and former gubernatorial candidate says he appreciates the support and encouragement he's received to run for the Senate or for governor, but wants to continue representing his congressional district, which includes St. Cloud.

Emmer was first elected to the House in 2014 and easily won re-election in 2016. Earlier this week, another top Republican, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, announced he will not run for the seat held by Al Franken before he resigned over sexual misconduct allegations.  

State Sen. Karin Housley is the only major Republican who has announced a bid for the Senate seat.
