I want you to meet my friend, Jason Rarick. Jason is locked in a tight race in a special election for state Senate in east central Minnesota. Jason is an electrician, not a politician – and he will be a much-needed conservative voice in St. Paul. This district has been in Democratic hands for decades […]
If it’s one thing I’ve learned on the campaign trail, it’s that Minnesotans are really, really good people — and I’ll never forget it. From the Iron Range to the prairies and everywhere in between, the spirit of Minnesotans is strong.

The allegations made against Minnesota state Rep. Jim Knoblach are deeply disturbing and Rep. Knoblach did the right thing by stepping aside. When Laura Knoblach came forward with her story, the community let her down. Accusers deserve to be heard and it’s about time someone listened to her.
In Friday’s debate, Keith Ellison again demonstrated how unfit he is to be Minnesota’s attorney general—but what’s more disturbing is my opponent’s continued hypocrisy on the abuse allegations against him. For Tina Smith to so brazenly call for a ‘full and thorough investigation’ into the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh but openly campaign with her friend Keith Ellison is hypocritical, offensive, and just plain wrong.
It’s an honor to receive the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s endorsement. I know the policy made in Washington has a direct effect on the success of Minnesota’s cattle industry.

Minnesota is home to some of the brightest students in the nation, taught by passionate, driven educators whose days are spent in the classroom doing incredibly important work – and doing it well.
