Alpha News recently sat down with Minnesota Rep. Jeremy Munson to discuss his ongoing congressional bid.

Munson outlined a variety of objectives that primarily centered around establishing America-first economic policies, securing future elections and making sure farmers in Minnesota’s First Congressional District are not hampered by unnecessary regulations amid an impending food shortage.

He also expressed his support for ending COVID-19 regulations and holding Dr. Anthony Fauci accountable for his role in the pandemic response.

“He needs to be held accountable for lying to the American public,” Munson said. “He needs to go away. He needs to be held accountable for his actions, and he needs to be put in jail.”

He also wants to audit the companies and lobbies that have profited greatly from various COVID-related government programs.

On election security, Munson was clear: “We should not be federalizing the elections.” He pointed out how removing states’ constitutionally-guaranteed right to administer their own elections would create a dangerously uniform system. If every municipality’s election is administered by the same central, federal authority, it only takes one breach to compromise the entire vote, he said.

No candidate was endorsed during the First District GOP’s April 23 convention, which ended after 15 hours and seven ballots. Munson led on every ballot, followed by Brad Finstad.

The seat has been vacant since mid-February after the passing of Republican Rep. Jim Hagedorn, who died following a three-year battle with kidney cancer.

Hagedorn’s death created a highly unusual election schedule, further complicated by the decennial redistricting process.

A special election for the vacant seat will take place on the same day as the statewide primary, which is Aug. 9. A special primary for the seat will be held on May 24. Both the special primary and election will be held under the old congressional district boundaries, whereas the statewide primary on Aug. 9 will be held under the new boundaries.

Early voting in the special primary began April 8.
