Nancy Reagan

R.I.P. NANCY REAGAN –

Meeting Ronald and Nancy Reagan in Mankato in 1979 was a lifetime thrill. They were very nice people and helped my dad, Tom (pictured along with my mom, sisters and me), win a landslide reelection for Congress in 1980. My family was sorry to learn of Mrs. Reagan’s death. We are grateful for all she and President Reagan did for our nation. God Bless the Reagan family.

MAIN STREET CAMPAIGNING / GOP PRECINCT CAUCUS –

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!

MIRANDA RIGHTS vs. LAST RITES

Our campaign continues to expose Tim Walz for his ‘soft on terrorism’ record.

This week we issued this video and press release condemning Walz for voting repeatedly to close the Guantanamo Bay prison and relocate the Islamic terrorists to the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota. Yes, you read that right.

MEDIA –

Islamic terrorism:

Our campaign’s focus on protecting the American people from Islamic terrorism and Tim Walz’s ‘soft on terrorism’ record is gaining more attention.

Check out this Minneapolis Star-Tribune article, “Minnesota Congressional Candidates Balancing Islamic Sentiments,” that reports on my proposal for the U.S. to take a refugee program “timeout” because Minnesota and our nation already have a terrorist recruiting problem.

WALZ LABELS CONSTITUENTS “UN-MINNESOTAN” –

This past week Tim Walz sponsored an advertisement in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune railing against unspecified acts of anti-Muslim bias and branding people as “Un-Minnesotan.” In my view, the ad a crass attempt to impose a political correctness litmus test and discourage Minnesotans from supporting candidates and policies designed to keep America safe. (See Walz ad here)
