Randy Demmer's congressional campaign got a big boost on Thursday with news that former Minnesota Gov. Al Quie was endorsing him. The announcement comes two days before the First District Republican Convention where the GOP is expected to endorse a candidate to take on Democratic Congressman Tim Walz in November.
In the letter, Quie praises the Hayfield representative's work in the Minnesota House. He writes, "Randy is the rare politician who doesn’t bend with the political winds, but instead approaches each and every decision with the same criteria in mind — what will best serve the people of my district and the greater good of Minnesota and our nation."
Here is a link to Quie's letter.
Four other candidates will be vying for the endorsement Saturday in Mankato. They are National Guard veteran Jim Engstrand, former congressional staff Jim Hagedorn, Army veteran Frank McKinzie and former state Rep. Allen Quist.
