I’m sad to have to report that Minnesota Republican Congressman Jim Hagedorn has died at 59. No cause of death was revealed. He tested positive for COVID-19 last month, but he’d also revealed a recurrence of kidney cancer last July.


His wife, Jennifer Carnahan, released a statement reading, "Jim loved our country and loved representing the people of southern Minnesota. Every moment of every day he lived his dream by serving others. There was no stronger conservative in our state than my husband; and it showed in how he voted, led and fought for our country."

All of us here at Huck PAC extend our sympathies and prayers to Jennifer and to Jim’s family. We endorsed Congressman Hagedorn in 2020 and would have done so again in 2022. He will be missed.
