(ABC 6 News) – Groups were outside the GOP convention protesting the candidates on Friday.

The group "Alliance for a Better Minnesota" claims every Republican Gubernatorial candidate is dangerous for Minnesota.

They say the candidates are pushing an extreme agenda, that will bring a Texas-style abortion ban to Minnesota and under-fund public schools.

"This election is crucial for Minnesotans, we’re coming out of the pandemic, our schools are in desperate need of support from our government, and we know with the Roe v Wade decision that was recently leaked, that abortion rights we need to secure those now more than ever… Communications Director for Alliance for a Better Minnesota, Emma Piorier said.

Protesters say Minnesota needs a candidate that stands up for families and schools.

The protesters will likely be back Saturday.
