Finstad thanks family, supporters, and voters for strong support in GOP primary

New Ulm, MN – Farmer, former State Representative, and President Trump USDA appointee Brad Finstad tonight won the Republican primary in Minnesota’s newly redrawn 1st Congressional District. As a result, Finstad will be the Republican candidate on the General  Election ballot on November 8 when voters will elect a member of Congress for the next two-year term.

Finstad is a family farmer and fourth-generation resident of the New Ulm area, who formerly served as President Trump’s State Director for USDA Rural Development in Minnesota.

The following is a statement from Brad Finstad:

“I am honored to receive the backing of voters across Southern Minnesota and I look forward to the contest this November for the full two-year term to represent the people of Minnesota’s 1st congressional district. This win is another step forward in advancing our Southern Minnesota values. There is no question that the election in November will again provide a clear contrast. I promise to fight the extreme Biden and Pelosi agenda that is devasting our families. I will work to slash inflation, get control of the border, restore American energy independence, and put our families first. Our district should not become a rubber stamp for the radical Democrat agenda that keeps kids out of classrooms, shuts small businesses down, and forces strict mandates on everyone but themselves. You have my commitment that I will bring our Southern Minnesota values to Washington, D.C. and work hard for you every single day.

“Importantly, we should take time tonight to remember the late Congressman Jim Hagedorn. Congressman Hagedorn fought tirelessly for our conservative values during his time in Washington, D.C. I am honored that voters have given me an opportunity to continue the fight for our shared values in Congress.

“I also want to thank my wife, Jackie, our seven children, and our extended families for their steadfast support during this campaign. I am in this race for the future of my family, your family, and our country. I am so blessed to have their love and support.”
