ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — GOP leaders in state Rep. Kurt Daudt's district plan a "no confidence" vote in him after the top Republican in the Minnesota House was detained by Montana authorities last September.
The vote was planned Tuesday night. The district's GOP leaders contend Daudt has not reached out to them about the gun incident Daudt was involved in and that he's not the fiscal conservative they thought he would be.
Daudt, of Crown, was detained by Montana authorities last September when a deal to buy a vintage truck soured and a friend accompanying him displayed the lawmaker's gun.
Two weeks ago, Daudt — the Minnesota House minority leader — publicly acknowledged the dispute after KSTP-TV reported on it.
Daudt's House spokeswoman told the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1dtU5WM ) Daudt was not available Tuesday afternoon.
