In Case You Missed It: Pete Stauber Launches Re-election Campaign

HERMANTOWN – Pete Stauber launched his 2020 re-election campaign this week, with a four-stop “Our Way of Life” tour around Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District. Stauber, who was welcomed by hundreds of supporters throughout the day on Monday, is campaigning to become the first Republican member of Congress to win re-election in the 8th District since William Pittenger won re-election in 1944 – 76 years ago.

“With historically low unemployment and an economy that is moving again, I want to continue fighting for our way of life built on the opportunity, freedom, and values we hold dear,” said Stauber, who in 2018 was endorsed by the Star Tribune, Duluth News Tribune, ECM Newspapers, and Adams Publishing. “I look forward to helping unleash the economic engine in our part of Minnesota, fighting to ensure health care is affordable and accessible, and keeping America’s economy moving with pro-growth policies that provide working families greater opportunity and prosperity.”

Stauber’s re-election campaign tour was highlighted by several news media outlets:
