Stauber Campaign Announces Endorsements

HERMANTOWN, MN – Tuesday, Republican candidate for the 8th Congressional District, Pete Stauber, shared a list of individuals who are publicly supporting him prior to the 8th Congressional District Republican Endorsing Convention on Saturday, May 5.

“I am extremely grateful for the support our campaign has earned over the past 9 months on the trail,” said Stauber. “I am energized and ready for this endorsing convention and ultimate victory in November.”

“I’ll just say this:  I respect him.  I admire him.  He’s my friend,” said former U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack (R-MN). “If I didn’t think he was a great candidate… if I didn’t think he could win… I would have told him friend-to-friend not to make the race.  Instead I told him, ‘Pete, go for it!’”

“Pete Stauber represents what is best about Minnesota: family; faith; leadership, and his natural ability to work with all sides to just get the job done is something that is essential to effective government today” said Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka.
