Dave Hughes, Republican Endorsed Candidate for US House, MN-7, wins Republican Nomination
August 15, 2018 (Karlstad, MN) – In May, Dave Hughes was endorsed by the 7th Congressional District Republicans on the first round of balloting with 81% of the vote. His grassroots support came out again and Dave Hughes won the Republican Primary with 72% of the vote on August 14th , winning 37 of 38 counties. Hughes was also the Republican Nominee in 2016, and he came within 5 points of winning, closer than any Republican in 22 years. Hughes believes his momentum, grassroots support, hard work, name recognition, qualifications and experience will result in victory November 6th.
“I am so thankful for the backing of the 7th District Republicans to take on Collin Peterson in November. We have a unique situation in CD7 because we have a Democratic Congressman who walked away from the Farm Bill, voted against Tax Reform, voted against both GOP Immigration Bills, and has been actively working against the America First Agenda. This is a Republican District and our current representation in Washington, DC, doesn’t align with our values. I believe my hard work and conservative values will bring the change folks have long wanted.” -Dave Hughes, Republican Candidate for US House, MN-7
“Congratulations on Dave’s overwhelming win in tonight’s primary. Tonight’s results show Dave will be a very formidable opponent for Collin Peterson in November.” -Craig Bishop, Minnesota 7th Congressional District Republican Party Chair
