MAIN STREET CAMPAIGNING –
Led by our “Highway 14 Team” of Young Republicans, the Hagedorn campaign’s tenacious retail campaigning is already in high-gear. Thanks to all the GOP activists and devoted volunteers who help us connect with southern Minnesotans at First District parades, fairs and festivals!
Last weekend we walked parades in Spring Grove, Preston and Hanska. Thanks to the Houston, Fillmore and Brown County Republican organizations for walking with us and supporting the Hagedorn campaign. The Good Lord blessed us with wonderful weather!
