U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis filed a lawsuit challenging Governor Tim Walz’s “stay at home” executive orders as unconstitutional under the U.S. Constitution on Tuesday. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. Lewis is currently campaigning against Tina Smith who currently serves as one of Minnesota's two Senators along with Amy Klobuchar.
Lewis says that Governor Tim Walz' stay-at-home order to slow the spread of coronavirus is preventing him from campaigning appropriately.
The Governor has said that he stands by his Executive Order.
"He's using Donald Trump's campaign lawyer in the lawsuit, so you can drawthe conclusion you want to from that. It's definitely going to spark Lewis' campaign, help him in fundraising, raise his national profile, stuff like that. But it'll help Lewis' campaign if it's successful."
