HAGEDORN NETS MORE CD 1 ENDORSEMENTS
Campaign Strengthens Support in Advance of Minnesota’s First District Republican Convention

Blue Earth, Minnesota – Jim Hagedorn, Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s First Congressional District today announced his campaign has been endorsed by five additional county chairs or deputy chairs.

The list of additional endorsements includes:

  • Frank Bernau, Dodge County Chair
  • Al DeKruif, Le Sueur County Chair and former State Senator
  • Jan Deters, Houston County Deputy Chair
  • Ebenezer Howe, Freeborn County Chair
  • Dave Richards, Blue Earth County Deputy Chair

“Jim Hagedorn’s strong work ethic, command of the issues, growing campaign team and continued dedication to running an aggressive campaign in all 21 counties of the First District makes him the clear choice for First District Republicans,” said Le Sueur County Chair and former State Senator Al DeKruif.

Hagedorn has now secured endorsements from 23 chairs, deputy chairs or co-chairs representing 18 of the 21 counties in the First Congressional District, in addition to six state legislators, numerous current and former Members of Congress and the U.S. Senate, and former First and Second Congressional District chairs. (See below for full list.)

“This outpouring of support is both humbling and energizing to our campaign,” said Hagedorn. “We are proud to be endorsed by these key Republican leaders and will be actively campaigning with them not only to secure endorsement on April 21, but to win in August and November,” Hagedorn stated.   

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 pickup opportunity in the country for U.S. House Republicans.
