MAIN STREET CAMPAIGNING –

Staying connected with Minnesota’s First District Republican activists is an important part of our campaign.

Recently, I’ve attended many GOP functions across southern Minnesota and met with the following Republican county organizations: Mower (pictured above), Freeborn, Rice, Blue Earth, Le Sueur, Fillmore and Steele. I also attended Minnesota’s First District Republican Party Convention in Owatonna and delivered this speech.
