It was another whirlwind week as I campaigned in 11 of the First District’s 21 Counties.

I visited the Steele (see above photo), Houston, Cottonwood, Martin and Le Sueur County Fairs. This season I attended 20 of the 21 County Fairs and had a lot of fun meeting voters, watching 4-H’ers show their animals and sampling cotton candy, fried Twinkies and various other delicacies.

Our campaign also walked parades in Spring Valley, Wells and Goodview (see below photo). Check out this popular video from Wells.

Lastly, I attended GOP functions in Albert Lea, Austin and our campaign walked door-to-door in Waseca and Faribault Counties.

Our debate with Tim Walz at Farmfest went great and our campaign continues to make inroads with struggling farmers and agribusiness people across Southern Minnesota. Why? Because I stand for the bold solutions needed to relieve regulatory burdens, taxes and needless costs that hurt agriculture and our rural communities. Click here for more.

Meanwhile, after voting with Obama to impose higher production costs upon farmers through excessive EPA regulations, Obamacare, expensive anti-energy global warming mandates, higher fuel taxes and the death tax – Tim Walz visited an organic farm last week and actually asked what he could do to help! How about giving up control of your U.S. House voting card, Congressman! For the whole story click here.

Bank Note


This is a now or never election. Either we take back our country and make big bold changes to Washington, D.C. or we will forever lose our Republic as the Forefathers envisioned.

I need your help, now, to win this election. We are working relentlessly, Walz’s liberal record is a disaster and my solutions are resonating with the voters. To win, all we need to do in these last months is spread our winning conservative message across Southern Minnesota and keep working hard.

Please make an electronic contribution of $100 (or whatever you can afford from $1 to $2,700) or send a check to: Friends of Hagedorn; 11 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 007; Mankato, MN 56001. Thank you!
