WORTHINGTON — As part of his 21-county district tour, U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn visited Nobles County Monday night for a town hall meeting.

He explained the job of a member of Congress, outlined his legislative priorities and answered questions from his constituents. Citizens from both sides of the political aisle showed up to ask Hagedorn about his policies and suggest courses of action.

Prior to the town hall, about 30 community members gathered outside the Nobles County Government Center to protest hateful language President Trump has used, particularly regarding immigrants and people of color. Hagedorn ran on a pro-Trump platform and continues to defend the president's action. The protesters called on Hagedorn to ask Trump to change his language.
