Michelle Fischbach does not yet have any prominent Tory primary challengers for her seat in Minnesota’s seventh congressional district, and Sod is likely solidly Republican after eliminating longtime Democratic congressman Collin Petersen last fall .
But Nikki Haley of South Carolina still lends her early support for Fischbach, endorsing his campaign for re-election last week more than a year after the 2022 campaign.
In a statement, Haley praised Fischbach for “a proven track record in putting families and farmers in Minnesota first” during his tenure in Congress. It’s no surprise: Haley backed Fischbach for her first congressional candidacy, and she’s used to supporting conservative women candidates across the country. But the timing of approval coincides with a recent blitz of activities in Minnesota for Haley, including a visit with young Republicans in Minnesota last week, where she mingled with activists and state lawmakers. .
The former governor of South Carolina and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations for two years traveled across the country this fall as she openly plans to run for president in 2024.
Fischbach can expect to benefit from Haley’s Stand For America PAC, who has done a digital fundraiser to support the candidates she has supported.
