MPR picked up on the story of a Super PAC who is interested in helping Pete Hegseth defeat Senator Amy Klobuchar. (emphasis mine)
Reclaiming Freedom has endorsed only one other candidate. Its decision to back Hegseth came early because the state’s Republican nominating convention is coming up so soon, Wise said.
Hegseth’s prospects for winning the GOP endorsement to challenge DFL incumbent Sen. Amy Klobuchar have been complicated by the fact that Ron Paul has endorsed Hegseth’s opponent, Rep. Kurt Bills. Paul’s supporters are expected to make a strong showing at the convention.
So over the next week or so, Wise said Reclaiming Freedom will be focusing on this message: “A vote by any of the delegates at the state convention for Kurt Bills is a vote for Amy Klobuchar,” Wise said.
Wise wouldn’t say exactly what the group’s strategy will be, but noted that it will be “aggressively engaging in Minnesota over the next two weeks.”
Wise said Reclaiming Freedom won’t be relying only on advertising; the group will be using polling, grassroots campaigns and direct mail as well.
