The Good Guy
Dan Feehan is an Iraq veteran (he earned the Bronze Star) who served as a Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under Obama, but he still puts his teaching experience on equal footing with his showier credentials, because he takes the idea of “service” seriously. Feehan knows his district’s unique needs, and came within a hair of winning in 2018. This one’s like choosing between the ribeye at Gibsons & a dumpster full of diapers.
The Bad Guy
Jim Hagedorn was already known as an unusually bigoted and misogynistic sack of shit, even by the standards of Trump’s GOP, and then the Black Lives Matter protests sent him over the edge into full white nationalism. Hagedorn hates poor people as much as he hates black people, but there’s nothing he hates as much as Minnesotans who believe they have a right to health care. Losing elections is an old hobby of Jim’s, and it’s time to reacquaint him with that sensation.
