HAGEDORN RAISED MORE THAN $220,000 (Q1 2017)
Blue Earth, Minnesota – Friends of Hagedorn, the campaign committee for Minnesota’s First District Republican congressional candidate Jim Hagedorn, announced strong early fundraising results for the first quarter of 2017.
Hagedorn raised more than $220,000 during the first quarter of 2017 (January 1 – March 31). The campaign will formally file its first quarter report with the Federal Election Commission by April 15th.
“Our close election has opened many fundraising avenues,” said Hagedorn. “The generous outpouring of financial support from fellow Minnesotans is truly humbling, and has positioned our campaign to continue building the strong financial and organizational momentum needed to win this open seat,” said Hagedorn.
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.
