State Representative Jim Newberger is running against Senator Amy Klobuchar this November...
The Republican made a stop in Mankato this afternoon.
The Republican is a paramedic out of Becker, and announced his candidacy back in August.

We caught up with him before a campaign event near campus, where he said he'd link his Democratic opponent to progressives in Washington D.C.
"Senator Klobuchar has not represented Minnesota. Not all of Minnesota. She's been the voice of the progressive far-left. Her voting record demonstrates that. When she comes home she's real friendly, she smiles for the camera, she gets the photos, poses with the kids. But then she goes back to Washington D.C. and votes 90% of her record with the Obama/Schumer Democrats," Newberger said.
Both Minnesota Senate seats will be voted on this election season.
