LITCHFIELD, MN – Michelle Fischbach, the Trump- and Republican-endorsed candidate for Minnesota’s 7th District, today reported being the top raising republican candidate in the history of the district.

Fischbach for Congress, Fischbach’s federal campaign committee, will report over $1 million raised for the pre-primary reporting period ending July 22, 2020. In the eight days since that deadline, Fischbach has received enough contributions to become the highest raising Republican candidate in the district’s history.  She hit that mark in only eleven months of campaigning as compared to a full two year cycle. 

“Michelle Fischbach continues to run a high level and competitive campaign the likes of which our district has rarely seen in the past 30 years,” said Craig Bishop, Chairman of the Seventh Congressional District Republicans. “Republicans across western Minnesota are excited for the chance to send a new conservative voice to represent us in Washington, D.C. next year.”

Minnesota’s Seventh District is one of the top pick-up opportunities in the country for U.S. House Republicans. President Trump carried the district by over 30 points in 2016, and it currently has a voter index of Republican+12.
