Hagedorn Weekly Report #5

The best part of campaigning is meeting First District residents. On Saturday I had fun walking in Fairmont’s Interlaken Heritage Days Parade and shaking hands with the people of Martin County, where we ran very strong in 2014! Thanks to State Rep. Bob Gunther and Neal and Juleen Breitbarth (pictured) for their strong support.

FUNDRAISING – Our campaign recently mailed out a fundraising letter to loyal supporters and other GOP donors. We are working hard to jump start fundraising and be in position to deliver our conservative message and finish the job in 2016.

According to federal election contribution rules individuals can contribute a maximum of $2,700 for the primary and $2,700 for the general election or $5,400 total. To contribute electronically, via our secure website, please click on the red DONATE button found below. To contribute by check, please make checks out to Friends of Hagedorn and send contributions to:

Thanks to all who contribute financially as well as those who volunteer their time and talent to the campaign.

HAGEDORN - WALZ (ON THE ISSUES) – For the second time in just three weeks we jumped on “Twin Cities Tim” Walz for joining his ultra liberal Minneapolis and St. Paul colleagues and voting against farmers, agricultural groups (including the Farm Bureau) and the interests of rural southern Minnesotans. 

Walz opposed bipartisan agriculture legislation designed to avert devastating Mexican and Canadian tariffs against pork, beef, poultry, corn and other products. Click here to read our campaign press release highlighting “Twin Cities Tim’s” anti-farmer vote and my position in support of rural Minnesota and agriculture.

THIS WEEK – I’m scheduled to meet with influential conservatives in Rochester, handle interviews with media outlets in La Crosse, Winona and other cities and shake hands with southern Minnesotans at several events.

Hope to see you as we campaign across the First District!

Best wishes,   

Jim Hagedorn
