On Saturday, April 2nd nearly 400 Republican Delegates gathered at the Goodhue High School to endorse their choice to represent them in the new Senate District 20. Representatives Steve Drazkowski and Barb Haley were both seeking to replace the retiring Senator Mike Goggin.
Drazkowski and Haley addressed the large group of grassroots Republicans sharing their values and vision for 2023. While delegates were allowed up to six separate votes to endorse their candidate, Representative Drazkowski handily won on the support of Republicans with 70% on the first vote.
Representative Drazkowski addressed the crowd after his endorsement by saying, “Our freedoms come from God, not from government. Our Founding Fathers wrote an amazing Constitution to protect our God-given freedoms. It is our responsibility to enact laws that respect those freedoms.” He ended his comments talking about the strong unity that he is working toward to ensure victory in November.
