    Late Republican Rep. Jim Hagedorn's widow is running in Minnesota's upcoming special election to take over his seat in the state's 1st Congressional District, she announced on Monday. Former Minnesota GOP Chair Jennifer Carnahan said the late congressman urged her to 'carry on his legacy' to 'win this seat' before dying. Hagedorn passed on February 17 after a years-long battle with cancer and a positive COVID-19 diagnosis despite being vaccinated. However, Carnahan's ties to an alleged sex trafficker and claims she presided over a toxic workplace and ignored sexual harassment within the party threaten to tank the GOP's chances of keeping the seat red. 'I am proud to announce my candidacy to represent Minnesota’s First Congressional District. Though my heart is still heavy after Jim’s passing, the encouragement I have received from throughout southern Minnesota has inspired me to carry on his legacy by running to complete the remainder of his term,' she said.  She stepped down from leading the Minnesota Republican Party in August of last year after mounting calls to do so, over her close links to GOP...

He announced his battle in February 2020 and began to receive treatment, having one kidney removed “along with cancerous tissues surrounding the kidney,” according to the Washington Post. “In July, he announced a reoccurrence of his kidney cancer,” the Post added. Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) offered her condolences, noting that her colleague “bravely endured the personal challenge...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn, a conservative Republican from southern Minnesota who followed his father’s footsteps into Congress, has died after a battle with kidney cancer, his wife said. He was 59. Jennifer Carnahan said in a Facebook post Friday that Hagedorn “passed away peacefully last night.” Hagedorn was diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer in February 2019, shortly after he began his first term, and just a couple months after he married Carnahan, then state chairwoman for the Minnesota Republican Party. He underwent immunotherapy at the Mayo Clinic. The treatment knocked back his cancer enough that doctors felt safe taking out his affected kidney in December 2020, which he said removed an estimated 99% of the cancer in his body. But he announced in July 2021 that his cancer had returned. Hagedorn represented the 1st District, which stretches across southern Minnesota. He won the seat in 2018 on his fourth try, after countless appearances in small-town parades and county fairs, and after nearly unseating then-Rep. Tim Walz in 2016. In both his 2018 and 2020 races...

                      by Anthony Gockowski  Rep. Jim Hagedorn slammed President Joe Biden’s “America last” policies after visiting the southern border last week. “It’s like they flipped a switch and they had open borders. Before you know it, catch-and-release is back and people are literally, for all intents and purposes, being invited to the border because they know they’re going to be processed and then sent deep into the United States, and given a lot of free things as they go,” Hagedorn told Newsmax. The Minnesota congressman joined a delegation from the House Border Security Caucus for a tour of the border last week. “Unbelievably, President Biden and Vice President Harris refuse to visit the border to address the crisis they created. Sadly, they are putting America and the American people last,” Hagedorn said before the trip. Migrant encounters reached a 20-year high of 178,622 in April, up from the record of 172,000 set in March. According to The Center Square, an estimated 42,000 additional migrants evaded Border Patrol agents and entered the general population...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) – Three Minnesota Republican congressmen are facing criticism for taking a commercial Delta flight home from Washington just two days after they were on Air Force One with President Donald Trump. Reps. Pete Stauber, Tom Emmer and Jim Hagedorn were on a Delta Air Lines flight Friday night despite its restrictions on passengers recently exposed to COVID-19. Trump announced early Friday that he had tested positive for the virus. Delta’s policy says customers who know they were exposed to the virus in the past 14 days cannot travel. The airline defines exposure as face-to-face contact with someone with the virus or sustained contact for more than 15 minutes less than 6 feet (2 meters) apart. Emmer, Hagedorn, and Stauber were aboard Air Force One as the president flew to a rally in Duluth on Wednesday. Emmer tweeted a picture of the three of them. (credit: Tom Emmer/Twitter) State Democratic Party chairman Ken Martin said the three congressmen put the health and safety of other passengers at serious risk. Heard from @Delta passengers that the flight was delayed by an hour...
    The head of the Democratic Party in Minnesota denounced Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn on Wednesday for heavy spending on taxpayer-financed mailings to his constituents and called for the House Ethics Committee to investigate. Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party State Chairman Ken Martin made the call at a news conference after the Star Tribune reported that emails between Hagedorn and his staff show he was personally involved in decision-making about the mailings. He has blamed staff for exhausting around a fifth of his $1.4 million official office budget on mailings alone in the first three months of the year. He fired his chief of staff, Peter Su, in mid-June over the issue. “This meant that Hagedorn spent as much of our taxpayer dollars on mailers as the average congressional office spends on everything else,” Martin told reporters. “It seems clear to us that was using his tax dollars to prop up his failing campaign.” In this June 10, 2018 photo, Minnesota 1st District congressional candidate Jim Hagedorn poses before a parade in Waterville, Minn.

    U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn has fired his chief of staff after a spending spree on taxpayer-funded communications, his office said on Saturday. The freshman Republican congressman, who represents Minnesota’s 1st District, spent almost 40% of his office’s annual expense allowances in the first quarter of this year, outpacing all of his colleagues in the House, according to Legistorm, a firm that tracks the allowances. About half of Hagedorn’s spending was on printing and mailing correspondence, totaling about $270,000, according to Legistorm. His office confirmed that Peter Su, who had served as chief of staff since he took office, has been fired. The Daily Caller first reported the firing. Hagedorn said in a statement that he became aware of the issue two months ago and hired outside counsel to perform an independent review. He also alerted both the House Administration and Ethics committees. “While these relatively routine duties were fully delegated to my former Chief of Staff and our finance officer, I acknowledge responsibility for the oversight of my office and will continue to make any necessary management improvements,” Hagedorn said....
