THREE MORE GOP MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ENDORSE HAGEDORN
Campaign Continues to Build National and State Party Unity
Blue Earth, Minnesota – The Friends of Hagedorn Committee today announced that three additional Members of Congress have endorsed Jim Hagedorn’s campaign for Congress in Minnesota’s First Congressional District.
The additional U.S. Congressmen who have endorsed Hagedorn include:
- Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-02) – Chair, Readiness Subcommittee of the Armed Forces Committee; Vice Chair, House Committee on Education and the Workforce
- Rep. Paul Mitchell (MI-10) – Vice Chair, Subcommittee on Aviation of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee; Vice Chair, Subcommittee on Information Technology of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee
- Rep. Kevin Cramer (ND-At-Large) – Member of the Communications and Technology, Energy, and Environment Committees, and Co-chair of the House Rural Broadband Caucus
“I’m honored to be endorsed by Congressmen Wilson, Mitchell and Cramer whose cumulative experience in foreign policy, education, transportation, energy and rural broadband concerns will provide our campaign with access to a wealth of knowledge on these issues that are vital to the economic sustainability and well-being of First District families, farmers, manufacturers and small business owners,” said Hagedorn.
Hagedorn has now been endorsed by 10 current Members of Congress representing seven different states. A full list of the prominent national, state and districtwide Republicans who have endorsed Hagedorn’s candidacy is attached.
The Friends of Hagedorn will periodically release its growing list of grass roots supporters which will include Republican County Chairs, Republican activists, Members of Congress and state legislators from all 21 counties in the First District.
In the 2016 election, Hagedorn received 49.6% of the vote against six-term incumbent Democrat 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.
