Litchfield, Minnesota – Today, Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach, Republican-endorsed candidate for Minnesota’s Seventh District, officially filed her candidacy with the Minnesota Secretary of State.

“One-party rule by the Democrats in Washington, D.C. has been devastating to the economy of western Minnesota and the nation,” said Fischbach. “It’s been my priority since taking office to make sure our rural communities are strong. I’m running for re-election to continue fighting for them, especially to undo the damage of high inflation and strangling regulations on our families, farms and businesses.”

“Congresswoman Fischbach has been a solid advocate at the federal level for rural Minnesota and our way of life,” said Craig Bishop, Chairman for the Seventh District Republican Party. “In her first 16 months, she has worked towards solutions for rural broadband, a return to energy independence, access to the Northwest Angle, and free and open trade. She has also defended the traditional values of rural communities, such as fiscal responsibility and protecting life. We are pleased to support the re-election of Michelle Fischbach.”

“I am honored to represent the Seventh District in Congress, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue as their voice in Washington, D.C.,” concluded Fischbach.
