As Minnesota 1st District Rep. Jim Hagedorn returns to Minnresota for a recess from Congress, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is announcing the launch of a targeted digital ad buy in the 1st  District.

 

The goal of the ad buy is to remind voters of just how out of touch the DCC believes Hagedorn is when it comes to the challenges facing working families. It cites a report last month in The Globe in which Hagedorn declared, “Nobody (in America) goes to sleep at night wondering if they’ll be able to feed their families.”

“After calling Washington D.C. home for more than 25 years, it’s no surprise that Hagedorn is having a hard time understanding the everyday challenges facing his constituents,” said DCCC Spokesperson Brooke Goren. “The DCCC intends to make sure Minnesota voters know exactly who Hagedorn is - a creature of the Washington establishment who is more in touch with his wealthy special interest backers than Minnesota working families.”

 

Following its April 24 publication of the report that included Hagedorn's "feed their families" comment, The Globe issued a clarification in its April 27 edition. The clarification stated that he was speaking "with regard to availability of food in grocery stores, and America having a food supply that is abundant and nutritious in stark comparison to other countries." 

 

The DCCC’s ads, which highlight Hagedorn’s words, will start running today and will appear on Facebook. The ads are targeted to the 1st District, ensuring that southern Minnesotans are aware of Hagedorn’s comments while he is visiting from Washington.
