By Lydia Hansen, PostBulletin - Jim Hagedorn has been shaking hands in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District since 2014.
That was the first time Hagedorn ran against incumbent Democrat Tim Walz for the congressional seat. After a defeat then and another narrower defeat in 2016, he believes the third time is the charm. Endorsed at the Republican State Convention on April 21, he’s running against state Sen. Carla Nelson of Rochester in the Aug. 14 primary.
Jim Hagedorn was interviewed by MN Public Radio in a radio segment titled "Friday Politics: Tariffs and financial relief for farmers." Click "read more" to listen to Jim's interview segment.Read more
By John Casper JR., Winona Daily News - Jim Hagedorn is hoping the third time’s the charm. But the Republican needs to win a primary first.
Hagedorn is once again running for Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District seat, a race he lost by eight points in 2014 but came within 2,500 votes of winning in 2016. (He also ran in 2010 but dropped out after he didn’t receive the GOP endorsement.)
