Hagedorn Weekly Report #42



A record number of Republicans turned out for Tuesday’s GOP Precinct Caucus. Our voters are energized and eager to take back our country!

The Hagedorn campaign was well represented across the First District on caucus night. More than 25 GOP leaders spoke on behalf of our campaign and encouraged folks to join our team and help us finish the job and defeat liberal Tim Walz in November. A heartfelt “thank you” to all who represented our campaign!

I spent most of Tuesday evening in Olmsted County shaking hands with hundreds of grassroots conservatives and addressing a large audience at Rochester’s Mayo High School (see above photo).

In my speech I expressed how the United States is in serious trouble and Republicans must win this election and implement big, bold change to take power from the Washington, D.C. politicians, bureaucrats and interest groups and return authority to the states and the American people.

I also offered voters my platform of keeping America safe from Islamic terrorism, securing our nation’s borders, growing the U.S. economy and creating high-wage jobs by weeding out excessive government, and defending our God-given rights, especially the right to keep and bear arms, the right to life and the right to religious freedom.

Later I traveled to Mankato and greeted caucus goers as they filed out of Mankato West High School (see below photo). Thanks to everyone for attending the GOP caucus and thanks to all the devoted Republican leaders and volunteers for making the evening a great success!


We have 7 grassroots fundraisers set for March, including one in Rice County and another in Steele County this coming week (see full details below).

Tim Walz is bankrolled by inside-the-beltway lobbyists, trial lawyers, Twin Cities socialists, government labor unions, extremist environmental groups and the abortion-on-demand lobby. Meanwhile, we rely upon the support of fine Americans like you.

Please attend one of our fundraisers and help finance our campaign. To contribute electronically, click here. To make a contribution by check, please mail to: Friends of Hagedorn; 11 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 007; Mankato, MN 56001. Thank you!

Godal Police Officers


Sheriff David Clarke takes on Black Lives Matter:

Check out this Facebook post and news story highlighting how black Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke is fighting back against the radical group Black Lives Matter.

I’m with Sheriff Clarke 100% and appreciate all that law enforcement officers to do protect and serve our communities.

By contrast, this past August Tim Walz and the Democrat Party passed a resolution in support of Black Lives Matter at the Democrat National Committee convention in Minneapolis, see news report. Embarrassingly, the very next day Black Lives Matter disrupted the Minnesota state fair chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon.” (See article here). Note that Tim Walz never condemned Black Lives Matter for their disgusting anti-police antics.

Hillary Clinton’s legal problems continue to mount:

As if losing Minnesota by 20 points wasn’t bad enough for Hillary Clinton and her super loyal super delegate Tim Walz, now the Department of Justice has granted immunity to HRC’s email server lackey. It’s no wonder Hillary’s southern Minnesota poll numbers are in the 20s and 30s! Click here to read the Washington Post article.


This week I will be meeting supporters in Rice and Steele Counties, making fundraising calls, engaging the media and preparing for 21 GOP county conventions!
