MN First District Republicans elect young, experienced board

Republican activists from across southern Minnesota gathered in Owatonna on April 1 in order to elect new leadership for the First Congressional District Republican Party.
With an average age of 31, but with over 40 years of combined experience, the newly-elected board members are ready to engage a new generation of voters in an effort to secure Republican victories in congressional, local and statewide races.
Jeremy Munson, a businessman from rural Lake Crystal, was elected as chairman.
His main objective is to send a Republican to D.C. to fill the soon-to-be vacant U.S. House seat, which Tim Walz is leaving to run for governor.
Munson is also focused on explaining the common-sense economics of the Republican Party platform.
“The Trump administration is reducing taxes and regulations, creating an opportunity for the American economy to accelerate,” Munson pointed out.
“This will allow companies to innovate and grow, which in turn increases jobs and wages benefiting hard-working families across southern Minnesota and the country. If we want our economy to continue to grow, we must elect a Republican Congressman that will work with our president, not against him.”
In addition to the election of Munson, Joel Hanson of Winona was re-elected as deputy chairman to help lead party operations.
Josh Anderson of Springfield was elected as the district’s representative to the Minnesota State Republican Party Executive Board.
Chris Styndl of Mankato was re-elected as treasurer to lead fundraising strategies.
Spencer Krier of Albert Lea was elected as secretary to lead social media and digital advertising campaigns.
“President Trump won the 18 to 24 year-old age group in Minnesota in 2016 with 48 percent of the vote,” said secretary Krier.
“The First District Republicans will build a broader social media campaign to further engage millennial/college-aged voters with our conservative message and candidates, especially in college towns like Rochester, Mankato and Winona.”
Republicans in the First District are optimistic about their chances in winning back the congressional seat following President Donald Trump’s 15-point victory over Hillary Clinton in the district.
“Not only did Donald Trump win the First District by 15 points in 2016, but our Republican governor and secretary of state candidates won district wide in 2014,” said deputy chair Hanson.
“With increasing Republican gains in southern Minnesota, Tim Walz saw the writing on the wall and gave up his seat before losing it. With this new party leadership team in place, I’m incredibly confident we’ll be sending a Republican to Washington in 2018.”
