President Trump Endorses Fischbach in Minnesota’s 7th District Race
LITCHFIELD, MN – Michelle Fischbach, the former Lt. Governor of Minnesota, today picked up the biggest endorsement any Republican candidate running for office can hope for: the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. The endorsement signals an effort by President Trump to unify 7th District Republicans behind Fischbach.
“Michelle @FischbachMN7 is running for Congress in Minnesota. Michelle will protect the unborn, is Strong on Crime & Borders, Cutting Taxes, your #2A, Loves our Military, Vets, & will stand w/ our Great Farmers. Michelle has my Complete & Total Endorsement!” President Trump wrote on Twitter.
“I’m honored to have President Trump’s complete endorsement and grateful for his leadership in uniting the 7th District Republican Party behind my campaign to defeat Collin Peterson in November,” said Fischbach. “It’s time we send President Trump a conservative Republican majority in the U.S. House to help him continue keeping his promises to the American people, including finishing the southern border wall, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, lowering the costs and expanding the options for health care, and keeping America great.”
In addition to President Trump’s endorsement, Fischbach is being supported by National Right to Life Committee, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, Congressman Pete Stauber, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Senator Tom Cotton, Senator Kevin Cramer, and more than 20 current state legislators who represent portions of Minnesota’s 7th District.
