Congresswoman Fischbach Announces Re-election Campaign

Litchfield, Minnesota – Today Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach announced that she will be seeking a second term in Congress. Fischbach was elected to Congress in 2020 by defeating a 30-year incumbent by 14 points.

“When I launched my campaign, I pushed for stronger rural communities,” said Fischbach. “That has been one of my priorities since taking office. I have fought for our western Minnesota values and am proud of the work I have done for my constituents in Congress, especially on the Agriculture Committee. With rising inflation, increases in the cost of living, and the next Farm Bill, there is much work to be done. I look forward to continuing my service on behalf of Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District in Congress.”

Fischbach has been traveling the district meeting with farmers, families, and civic leaders since she took office.
