Westrom endorsed by 7th district Republicans

Torrey Westrom, Minnesota State Senator and Republican candidate for U.S. Congressional District 7, was endorsed today at the Seventh Congressional District Republican convention.

Craig Bishop, Chairman of the Seventh District Republicans, said “Congratulations to Senator Torrey Westrom who was endorsed today at our convention.  A proven conservative leader with rural values, Torrey was first elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives at the age of 23.  Since then, he has fought for smaller government, rural job opportunities and conservative common sense solutions.”

In response, Senator Westrom stated “I am honored to be endorsed by our Seventh District Republicans and we are very excited about the race ahead.  It is time for fresh leadership to represent our district in Washington.  To change the direction of our country, we need to change the players at the table, and we intend to do just that.”

Westrom was dubbed “Collin Peterson’s worst nightmare” by the, and Politico recently said “Peterson is expected to face a tough race in Minnesota’s 7th District.”
