Hagedorn Weekly Report #57

Press Conference


Recently I held press conferences in Rochester and Mankato and addressed the threat of radical Islam. I offered solutions, including a refugee program “timeout,” to help prevent or minimize the likelihood of future attacks by Islamic terrorists. To review our campaign’s press release click here.

The United States is at war with Islamic supremacists who believe in the ideology of radical Islam. Our nation must stop importing potential enemy combatants from nations that hate America and abhor western values.

As far as I’m concerned, the era of political correctness is over. You can count on me to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done to solve the many serious problems facing our nation, including especially the threat from Islamic supremacists.

Below are several news reports on my press conferences. Click to view.

We had a fun week campaigning across the First District. Thanks to all who volunteered to help our campaign walk parades in Viola, Lake Crystal, Lakefield, Alden (see above photo), Janesville and Mountain Lake.

Special thanks to the Olmsted, Blue Earth, Jackson, Faribault, Nicollet, Waseca and Cottonwood County Republicans for all their help and support! I like the way Nicollet County cruised through Nicollet’s Friendship Days Parade with class and style (see below picture)!

President Obama, Hillary and the Democrat Party are trying to divert the public’s attention away from the Orlando murderer’s views of Islamic supremacy and willingness to kill Americans by offering a deluge of gun control proposals. 

During my press conference on Islamic terrorism I was asked my opinion about blocking gun sales to people on the terrorist watch list. Click to view my answer.


Our campaign commissioned the respected Harper Polling, Inc. to conduct a survey of First District voters to gauge opinion on the race for Congress and President. To view the results click here.

We are in striking position to defeat an entrenched liberal. Please make a contribution via our secure electronic server or send a check to: Friends of Hagedorn; 11 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 007; Mankato, MN 56001. Thank you!

Unions are feeling the Obamacare premium and deductible explosion:

Even some of the unions that lobbied for passage of the Affordable Care Act are feeling the pinch of premium and deductible increases. We must replace Obamacare with free market reforms. Click to view my solutions and reforms to expand our economy, create high-wage jobs and place downward pressure on the cost of basic items, including health insurance, food, fuel and electricity.   

Democrats playing political correctness games on Islamic terrorism:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Obama administration are more determined to defend Islam’s reputation and the election prospects of the Democrat Party than the country. That’s my conclusion after AG Lynch was caught whitewashing 911 tapes and references to Allah and radical Islam by the Orlando murderer. Click for story.


This week I am scheduled to campaign across the First District, participate in parades and seek your full support.

Thanks for reading!
