    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Hormel Foods executive Jeff Ettinger cruised to victory Tuesday in a Democratic primary to finish the term of the late U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn, while Republican Brad Finstad held a small lead over Jeremy Munson in their primary. Finstad, a former state representative, and Munson easily outpaced a crowded field of Republicans eager for a shot at capturing the Republican-leaning seat. Finstad led by 389 votes out of more than 36,000 cast, a margin of just over 1 percentage point.

The winner will meet Ettinger in August to determine who will finish the last few months of Hagedorn’s term. The stakes are likely higher than that, though, with the winners expecting a bump in their chances to win a full term later in November.Click Here For The Latest Primary Results“We’re very excited.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Hormel Foods executive Jeff Ettinger cruised to victory Tuesday in a Democratic primary to finish the term of the late U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn, while Republicans Brad Finstad and Jeremy Munson were locked in a close battle late into the evening. Finstad, a former state representative, and current state Rep. Munson were well ahead of a crowded field of Republicans eager for a shot at capturing the Republican-leaning seat.

It’s really an honor to have the trust of the voters in the district,” Ettinger said. “I’m ready for the next stage of the race. I intend to offer the district a non-politician’s alternative — someone who will be inclusive and respectful in representing the district.” Other...
    Loading the player... House Democrats released a joint statement in response to comments made by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, which conservatives and Jewish democrats say compared the U.S. and Israel to terrorist organizations. On Monday, the progressive Omar posted a video of herself on Twitter questioning Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” she captioned the tweet. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.” Minnesota Rep.

(Photo by Stephen Maturen/Getty Images) Two days later, 12 Jewish Democrats issued a statement calling on Omar to clarify her remarks. She later said, “I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.” As the controversy around her remarks appeared to pick up steam, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,...
    Republican congressional candidate Michelle Fischbach defeated longtime Minnesota Democrat Rep. Colin Peterson, Fox News reports. With votes from all but one precinct reported, Fischbach received 53.5% of the vote, compared to Peterson’s nearly 40%, to represent the state’s 7th District. "I am honored to have the outpouring of support from Minnesota families across #mn07," Fischbach tweeted Tuesday. "I am grateful for the backing and am excited to hit the ground running in Washington to work on behalf of MN." Peterson had been in office since 1991. Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District is the largest in the state. President Donald Trump endorsed Fischbach in March. She previously served as Minnesotas lieutenant governor from 2018 to 2019 and was the states first female Senate president in 2017.

    WASHINGTON — Firebrand Rep. Ilhan Omar (D. MN) appears to be rubbing some of her fellow Democrats the wrong way — one of them now declaring she shouldn’t even be in the party. In a video obtained by The Post, fellow Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson torched the scandal-scarred progressive lawmaker after previously defending her controversial “some people did something” remarks about 9/11. “Do you have any comment as to why you defended Ilhan Omar?” an employee with the National Republican Congressional Committee asked Peterson on Capitol Hill Thursday. “I don’t defend her. She doesn’t belong in our party,” the 16-term lawmaker responded. When asked to clarify himself, a COVID-19 masked Peterson repeated: “She doesn’t belong in our party,” as he walked away. Omar won a competitive primary fight in her downtown Minneapolis district by a landslide last month but Peterson is facing a tough re-election battle in his increasingly red rural Minnesota district. The Gopher State representatives are both members of the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party and have voted together on issues like police reform in the past. It’s unclear why Omar...
    A DLF CANDIDATE running for a spot in the Minnesota House of Representatives was filmed yelling profanities at a group of people displaying a pro-police sign in their yard.

"Blue lives ain't s--t, and if people in Hugo don't support black people, f--k Hugo." Thompson is seen shouting that as a black man, he was being terrorized by "the grand wizard" and that "the grand wizard" is living in their neighborhood, pointing to Kroll's house. He appeared to brand the family outside the house as being apart of the KKK saying "the Klan exists in Hugo, Minnesota." 3He also seemed to brand the group at the KKKCredit: The DC Shorts The Democratic-Labor-Farm...
    Former Minnesota Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach on Tuesday declared victory in the GOP primary for Minnesota’s 7th congressional district in the rural western part of the state. It sets up what is likely to be one of the most competitive battleground states as the GOP aims to end the 30 year dominance of Democratic incumbent Collin Peterson. In a contentious five way primary, Fischbach, who earned crucial endorsements from both Minnesota GOP and President Trump in the final weeks, dominated the race by more than 59% of the total vote. She easily defeated out her strongest opponent, Air Force veteran and the GOP challenger from the district in 2016 and 2018, Dave Hughes by almost 40%.
