The Minnesota GOP has called on Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson to resign after
he drunkenly crashed his county-owned vehicle outside of Alexandria earlier this month. The Democratic sheriff was elected in November 2018 and received the endorsements of Gov. Tim Walz, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and the Minnesota DFL, led by Chairman Ken Martin. None of these officials have commented on the incident. Hutchinson rolled his vehicle off the road.
