No GOP District 7 Endorsement

The Republican convention of the 7th Congressional District in Minnesota failed to make an endorsement on Saturday.

Representative Michelle Fischbach will now face Steve Boyd in the August 13 primary election.

The West Central Tribune reports neither candidate gained the 60% needed for the endorsement after three rounds of voting.

A convention vote then approved a motion not to make an endorsement.

The primary winner will earn the Republican endorsement for the 7th District race in the November general election.
