The candidates for Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District sat down with us to tell us why they are running, what sets them apart from their competition, and how they would handle the Syrian refugee issue if elected to Congress.

The five candidates are radio show host and author Jason Lewis, certified public accountant and former state representative Pam Myhra, corporate-level manager David Gerson, business owner and former state senator John Howe, and political consultant and real-estate development assistant David Benson-Staebler.

The candidate will likely be chosen in late April with more debates set to take place beforehand.  Subscribe to Alpha News as we continue to follow this race.
