Hagedorn (mid) November Report

Boschwitz-Gutknecht Rochester Fundraiser


Thanks to all the Hagedorn supporters who packed the Kahler Apache ballroom on the 15th and made our Boschwitz-Gutknecht Rochester fundraiser a huge success!

Everyone enjoyed meeting and listening to remarks from former United States Senator Rudy Boschwitz of Minnesota, a true political icon; former First District Representative Gil Gutknecht, a passionate conservative leader; and, U.S. Army hero Jack Zimmerman, truly a great American (see above photo).

I had fun addressing the fundraiser and rallying our Rochester-area supporters. Thanks to Rudy, Gil, Jack and all for your support and encouragement.

Fairmont’s GLOWS (pre-Christmas) Parade


Twenty Hagedorn volunteers braved rainy and chilly weather last Friday evening to walk Fairmont’s GLOWS (pre-Christmas) Parade. We had a great time walking parade #50!

Betsy Singer Interview


Thanks to news anchor Betsy Singer and KAAL-TV (Rochester, Austin) for interviewing both my GOP competitor and me and posting this video. My segment begins at the 8:50 mark, but please take time to view both interviews and draw your own conclusion.


While we have enjoyed strong early fundraising of over $400,000 through the first three quarters of 2017, the Hagedorn campaign must continue to build its war chest. Our MN-1 open seat is the best takeover opportunity in the nation for U.S. House Republicans.

Democrats are desperate to try and hold our R(+5) district. Liberals from California, New York, Illinois and DC are already flooding southern Minnesota with national money to support the campaign of a hand-picked Obama-Pelosi radical.

In fact, during the last reporting period, the leading Democrat candidate raised $250,000 – an estimated 99% of which came from outside the First District.

Please make a contribution and help us prepare for 2018. To contribute online, visit jimhagedorn.org/donate. Or mail a check to: Friends of Hagedorn; 11 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 007; Mankato, MN 56001. Thank you!
