State Rep. Jordan Rasmusson Announces Run for State Senate District 9
(Fergus Falls, MN) — State Representative Jordan Rasmusson (R-Fergus Falls) announced today that he is officially seeking the Republican endorsement in the new Minnesota Senate District 9. Rasmusson previously announced his candidacy for the State Senate last month after current State Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria) announced his retirement from the legislature.
“Minnesota is at a crossroads. Now more than ever, we need leaders at the State Capitol who will focus on controlling state spending and taxes, protecting life and our Second Amendment freedoms, and supporting farmers, small business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Rasmusson. “As the 6th generation of my family to live in Otter Tail County, I learned the importance of hard work, integrity, faith, and family. I look forward to carrying those values to the Minnesota Senate and working hard every day to defend and enhance our Greater Minnesota way of life.”
Earlier this week, the Minnesota Supreme Court released Congressional and Legislative maps for the next decade. The new Senate District 9 includes all of Otter Tail, Grant, Traverse and Wilkin Counties as well as a portion of Douglas County. The new Senate District 9 includes all of Rasmusson’s current House District.
During his term in the Minnesota House, Rasmusson has opposed higher taxes and costly small business mandates, reopened the driver’s license exam center in Otter Tail County, passed mental health reforms that increased access for residents in west central Minnesota, and supported law enforcement and tougher sentences for repeat criminals.
Rasmusson and his wife Emma live in Otter Tail County. Rasmusson is a graduate of the Fergus Falls High School and serves on several local boards including the Fergus Falls YMCA and Otter Tail County Historical Society and is an active member of Grace Lutheran Church in Erhard.
