HAGEDORN UNVEILS “21 COUNTIES IN 21 DAYS” CAMPAIGN SWING
First District border-to-border tour will take campaign door-to-door across southern Minnesota
Blue Earth, Minnesota – Jim Hagedorn, Republican-endorsed candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s First Congressional District, today announced the Friends of Hagedorn campaign team will be undertaking a 21 county border-to-border tour in the 21 days leading up to the November 6 general election.
Like the highly successful pre-primary barnstorming, the campaign swing will include morning coffee stops, lunch visits, mainstreeting, church suppers, football games, community events and door-knocking, and culminate at the election night party in Mankato.
“The policy differences between my liberal opponent and me are substantial, and give voters a clear choice” said Hagedorn. “I’ll partner with President Trump and like-minded conservatives to keep America safe, expand our economy with high-wage jobs, defend our God-given rights, and sustain agriculture and our rural southern Minnesota way of life. My opponent will join Nancy Pelosi in a slash-and-burn campaign of confrontation, resistance and obstruction,” Hagedorn stated.
While each scheduled day lists the start time for door-to-door activity in that particular county, and the location where press may meet the candidate, there will be numerous other activities on each day of the swing at which volunteers can assist.
Volunteers are encouraged to join the campaign at any stop, and Hagedorn will be available to personally speak with voters who have questions or want to know his position on issues facing the First District.
“We kicked off our campaign on November 9, the day after we reached 49.6 percent of the vote in 2016, and this 21-day swing will culminate two years of intense campaigning with the goal to listen, learn and be prepared to faithfully represent the views and values of southern Minnesotans. With their vote on November 6, I know I am ready to do just that,” concluded Hagedorn.
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 pick-up opportunity in the country for U.S. House Republicans.
