How to Break a Blue Wave

Munson & Hagedorn

Earlier this week we saw the Republican rebuttal to the Democrat Party's claim of a blue wave. My good friend Jeremy Munson worked extremely hard and decisively won the special election in Minnesota House District 23B this Monday. This is proof that the electorate is still yearning for candidates with a strong message of conservative principles to represent them.

By Joe Steck, Mankato Times - BLUE EARTH, MINN. — Jim Hagedorn, Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s First Congressional District, today visited with Republican attendees at precinct caucus locations in Rochester, Byron, Kasson and Dodge Center. 

“It was a privilege to meet with caucus participants in Dodge and Olmsted counties tonight, and I was impressed with the organization and excitement at every caucus location,” said Hagedorn. “Republicans are energized for the 2018 elections,” he commented.

Jim’s Letter to Caucus Attendees

Jim Hagedorn

Dear Fellow Republicans,

My name is Jim Hagedorn and I am seeking your support, and Republican endorsement for the 1st District seat in Congress.

As you know, in 2016, we gathered 49.6 percent of the vote and nearly upset Democrat Tim Walz, who has retired to run for another office. 

Throughout 2017 and 2018, the Hagedorn campaign has been actively campaigning in all 21 counties of the district, raised a record amount of money, and secured endorsements from 16 of 21 county chairs or co-chairs, state legislators, members of Congress, U.S. Senators, and hundreds of other activists. We are uniting the Republican Party behind our campaign!

This open seat presents Republicans with an opportunity flip the First Congressional District, and elect a candidate who will faithfully represent the views and values of the people of southern Minnesota. I respectfully suggest I am that candidate.

As a farm-raised southern Minnesotan and lifelong passionate conservative, I have the commonsense understanding to effectively defend our beliefs and principles.  As our congressman, I will partner with President Trump to reform government, cut spending, institute a “peace through strength” foreign policy and protect our borders.

I look forward to speaking with you in the days ahead and fighting for the issues that are important to you and our great nation. Please visit my website, to learn more.

Thank you again for your dedication to our shared conservative principles and your commitment to electing Republicans in 2018. Let’s win in November!
