February 25th, 2020
Precinct Caucus Attendees, Fellow Republicans & Friends,
Just as it was the honor of a lifetime to serve the people of Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District in the 115th Congress, it is an equally great honor to have my name before you this evening, ready to take on Senator Tina Smith as our Party’s candidate for the United States Senate.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for coming out to exercise your right to self- governance and self-representation.
I am running for the United States Senate for a simple but crucial reason- I am seeking to protect our Constitution, American values and way of life from a radical Democratic Party that undermines them on a daily basis.

As the father of two daughters, I wonder what kind of future we are leaving for our children and grandchildren. Will we allow them to grow up in a free and prosperous nation that affords opportunity to every man, woman, and child based on their own hard work? Or will we condemn our children and grandchildren to a Socialist country where speech is restricted, Constitutional rights are trampled upon, and the light of freedom and opportunity are snuffed out?

Our efforts over the next ten months will decide that question.
President Trump enthusiastically endorsed my candidacy at his Minneapolis rally in October by declaring on national television “I’m also proud to endorse your next Republican Senator, a man that I’ve known, a man that is tough and smart, a man that’s running against somebody who’s never done a damned thing in the Senate: Mr. Jason Lewis.”

Make no mistake fellow Republicans, I am the only candidate in this race who will have the President’s back when I get to the United States Senate.

President Trump came within a point and a half of winning Minnesota in 2016. The state is rapidly changing, and this transformation can be accelerated if we work hard and work together. I’m fighting for every vote in every corner of this state- since announcing my campaign in late August we have visited over 60 of the 87 counties and we have traveled nearly 10,000 miles.

Whether it’s in Greater Minnesota, the Twin Cities or the suburbs- where I was able to outperform the top of the ticket in BOTH of my campaigns for the House of Representatives), I will be fighting for every last vote and building a coalition of Minnesotans who are ready to roll up their sleeves and fight for our country’s future.

Senator Tina Smith can and will be defeated. She is a career bureaucrat who made her living as a Planned Parenthood executive, and recently she voted to remove a sitting, duly-elected President from office without a shred of evidence, all while ignoring Minnesota’s needs and interests. She and her radical Party want to restrict free speech, they don’t believe you should have the right to keep and bear arms, they want to outlaw the internal combustion engine and shut down our mines and pipelines with insane proposals like the “Green New Deal.” They want to dismantle and abolish private health insurance. They believe in open borders, unrestricted and even post-birth abortion. Tina Smith has got to be stopped, and when I’m your nominee for United States Senate- she will be.

Please visit LewisForMN.com for more information about how to get involved with our team. There you can read more about my “Contract with Minnesota,” a ten-point campaign platform that includes protecting the tax cuts and regulatory reforms I worked with President Trump to pass as a member of Congress. I also discuss my commitment to appointing conservative judges, protecting and fighting for the unborn, securing our borders, helping our farmers and agricultural industries, and fighting for good-paying energy, mining, and logging jobs- especially on the Iron Range. I will protect our healthcare system from the radical takeover schemes being pushed by the Socialist Democrats, defend our right to keep and bear arms, and ensure that our veterans are being taken care of.

And so, I humbly ask you to put your name forward to be a delegate at your upcoming BPOU convention, and I humbly ask for your support so that we can send a resounding message to all Minnesotans: Not only will Donald Trump be the first Republican Presidential candidate to win Minnesota since Richard Nixon did it in 1972, but with your help I will be the first Republican U.S. Senate candidate to win since 2002.

I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail soon, and I thank you for your support and participation tonight. God bless you, God bless Minnesota, and God bless the United States of America.

US Senate Candidate Jason Lewis: All Cities in Minnesota are Important

Republican 66Bers met with US Senate Candidate Jason Lewis at John’s Pizza Cafe on January 14, 2020. Pictured left to right: Paul Vlahutin, Jeff Carnes, Troy Penz, Rosalie Vlahutin, Jason Lewis, Travis Ekbom, R.T. Grels, Tom Polachek, Reed Skogerboe. Photo by Tom Szymanski.

US Senate Candidate Jason Lewis stopped in to address those at the HD 66B Republicans BPOU meeting on January 14, 2020. MN CD4 House of Representatives Candidate Travis Ekbom addressed those gathered briefly. Travis is the Vice Chair of Outreach for the HD 66B Republicans as well.

Jason Lewis said what we in St Paul know to be true, you can’t win the state of Minnesota without voters from the Cities of St Paul and Minneapolis. It is a hard fight in the City of Saint Paul as DFLers have been conditioned to vote for their party no matter what the results of DFL leaders actions are. No where in either city is there a majority of Republicans to enact responsible ordinances that serve citizens rather than the way DFL does government where citizens serve them. Those in power in these cities are never held accountable for their actions or their negligence.

Jason Lewis addressed the growing size of the Debt as it is a bi-partisan effort to dig this country deeper into debt. A question was asked by Reed Skogerboe if it was possible for the Government to pass a two year budget instead of having a Continuing Resolution to fund the Federal Government.

Jason said the discretionary budget is determined not through need so much, but rather through the dealing on other bills. To get some movement on some bills deals will be struck on spending in someone’s district or state. “Both parties,” he said, “sadly are responsible for runaway spending.” He continued saying revenues are up, there is no problem with revenue coming in especially with all the people who had been unemployed under Obama are now working and paying taxes.

“Both Parties sadly are responsible for Runaway Spending.”

Jason Lewis mentioned how he has met with Never-Trump people and he doesn’t understand how they can be so stubborn in not supporting a President that is leading the country in the right direction. He said President Trump has brought blue-collar workers into the party, and he is making great strides to break the mentality among Black Americans to vote for Democrats. It has only been since the Great Depression of the 1930’s since Black Americans have been voting for Democrats, prior to then they had been solid Republican voters.

Jason Lewis talked about the possibility of thousands of jobs in mining in the Iron Range of Northern Minnesota. The high grade iron ore on the Mesabi Range was used to make tanks, ships, and other vehicles in World War II. The copper and nickel stand to bring back the economies of towns up north. He mentioned Tina Smith is in the pocket of the Sierra Club.

Jason Lewis said there are many reasons to vote for Republicans this year. Trump has passed VA Hospital reform with the Mission Act, passed a trade deal with Mexico and Canada that reformed NAFTA to benefit American Workers and is working on reducing our trade deficit with other nations.

Tom Polachek, a US Army Vet, mentioned the problems he has had with the VA not paying his ambulance bills from March 2017 until recently after 32 months. He told Jason there is a group at the VA Minneapolis called, “Save Our VA,” pretending to be patients but is actually run by employees in the building. Jason said the VA is a Government Healthcare System that is a model for some Democrats in how they want your healthcare needs to be met. The Mission Act allows Vets to see a doctor in their own city. Tom says some departments have a long waiting list for Vets to to be seen by VA doctors. He scheduled a podiatry appointment in December 2019 and the earliest he could be seen is March 2020, so he is using the Mission Act to be seen earlier.

Jason Lewis wrapped up saying every block and precinct in St Paul is important to winning in November 2020 for Republicans.

After Jason Lewis left, MN CD4 House Candidate Travis Ekbom announced his Brewery Blitz events coming up, the first one at Big Wood Brewery on Thursday January 23 from. 6:30 to 8:30 pm in White Bear Lake. There will be a separate article about this and another for Sia Lo’s event on January 19th who is also running for the CD4 Republican Nomination.

Our next bpou meeting will be Saturday February 8th. Look for another post for more details. If you would like to be a convener in your precinct in the HD 66B Republican Precinct Caucuses on February 25, 2020, please send an email to mnhd66brepublicans@gmail.com with subject “Precinct Convener,” mention what precinct you live in.
