“I’m grateful to have received the Republican endorsement for a second term,” Hertaus said. “After a legislative session of higher taxes, skyrocketing government spending and other misguided policies, Minnesotans are ready for new leadership. I look forward to returning to St. Paul as a member of the majority and getting to work on solutions that will make life easier for Minnesota families, not more expensive.

Hertaus is the former mayor of Greenfield and was first elected in 2012. District 33A covers the western portion of Hennepin County.
