“Representing the people of southern Minnesota is the greatest privilege of my life.”

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jim Hagedorn was sworn in for a second term serving the people of Minnesota’s First Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Upon his swearing in, Rep. Hagedorn issued the following statement:

“Representing the people of southern Minnesota is the greatest privilege of my life, and I am honored to have earned their confidence to serve a second term.

“I am proud of what we accomplished in the past two years to open new markets for the First District’s farmers and agriculture producers, promote job growth by removing burdensome regulations on our small businesses, and secure resources for southern Minnesota’s world-class medical care providers, especially as they were faced with combatting the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

“As we kick off this new Congress, I pledge to stand up for the conservative values that have made America the greatest nation on earth – Peace Through Strength, free enterprise capitalism and individual opportunity – and fight for southern Minnesota’s small businesses, farmers, workers, families and way of life.”

Jim Hagedorn was reelected in 2020 to serve Minnesota’s First District in the U.S. House of Representatives for a second term. He grew up on his family’s grain and livestock farm near Truman. Jim’s father, former Congressman Tom Hagedorn (MN-02), grandfather, and great-grandfather were all southern Minnesota farmers, and Jim resides in the rural community of Blue Earth. During his time in Congress, Hagedorn has consistently fought for the conservative principles that have made America the greatest nation in the history of the world and championed legislation to promote the First District’s primary industries and job creators – farming, small business and medical care. Hagedorn is a member of the House Committees on Agriculture and Small Business.
