HAGEDORN CONTINUES SOLID FUNDRAISING PACE
Blue Earth, Minnesota – Friends of Hagedorn, the campaign committee for Minnesota’s First District Republican congressional candidate Jim Hagedorn, announced continued strong fundraising for the third quarter of 2017 (July 1 – September 30).
During the third quarter, Hagedorn raised more than $100,000, with over $400,000 raised to date, and enjoys a cash-on-hand position of nearly $240,000. The campaign will formally file its report with the Federal Election Commission on October 15th.
“I am thankful for the continued financial support of Minnesotans, both in the First District and across our state, which has enabled our campaign to surpass our entire 2016 campaign expenditures,” said Hagedorn. “We will continue to work to unify the Republican Party, maintain our full-time campaign across all 21 counties of the district and stand for the conservative solutions that accurately reflect the views and values of southern Minnesotans,” Hagedorn concluded.
In the 2016 election, Hagedorn received 49.6% of the vote against six-term incumbent Tim Walz, who is not seeking re-election to Congress. Minnesota’s First District is considered the best takeover opportunity in the country for U.S. House Republicans.
