HAGEDORN ENDORSED BY FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL ACTION PAC
“You are the leader that Minnesota needs,” says FRC Action PAC Executive Director
Blue Earth, Minnesota – Jim Hagedorn, Republican-endorsed candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s First Congressional District, today announced he has been endorsed for election by the Family Research Council Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action.
The mission of Family Research Council Action PAC is to support and help elect candidates who will protect, defend, and promote the sanctity of life, natural marriage, strong families, and religious freedom.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Family Research Council Action PAC. The right to life, the preservation of the family, and the right to religious freedom have always been cornerstones of our campaign not only because they are my heartfelt convictions, but also because they represent the views and values of First District families,” said Jim Hagedorn.
In endorsing Hagedorn, FRC Action Executive Vice President Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin (US Army-Ret) stated:
“We appreciate your commitment to faith, family values, and individual responsibility. You are a pro-life candidate with a strong commitment to protecting life from conception until natural death. You also recognize that religious freedom is one of the central pillars on which our country was founded. You understand that every American should have the freedom live out their faith without fear of government interference or punishment. If elected, we believe that you will be a strong proponent of these principles in Congress.”
The mission of the FRC Action PAC is to support pro-family candidates and pro-family issues in elections around the country. It was established as an extension of Family Research Council Action’s efforts to bring to public office men and women who will protect, defend, and promote the sanctity of life, natural marriage, strong families, and religious freedom.
In the 2016 election, Hagedorn received 49.6% of the vote against six-term incumbent Tim Walz, who is not seeking re-election to Congress. Minnesota’s First District is considered the best pickup opportunity in the country for U.S. House Republicans.
