New Ulm, MN – U.S. Representative Brad Finstad issued the following statement after winning re-election to represent Minnesota’s First Congressional District.

“I spoke with Jeff Ettinger this evening and thanked him for a hard-fought race,” said Finstad. “Although we have differing opinions, Jeff ran a strong campaign and I thanked him for his candidacy.”

“Family pocketbooks are hurting more than ever and tonight’s results speak loud and clear: southern Minnesotans are fed up with high energy prices and a failed economic agenda. Today, they voted for a different direction.

“I am honored that voters have given me the opportunity to continue fighting in Congress for our southern Minnesota values. I’m ready to
work with a new Republican majority to finally fire Nancy Pelosi and hold the Biden Administration accountable for their failures that are devastating our families. Now, we get started on slashing inflation, securing the border, restoring American energy independence, and putting our families first.

“It has been a long road since I first entered this race, and I want to thank my wife Jackie, our children, and our extended family for
their continuous love and commitment. I could not have done this without their unwavering support.”
