1st District Congressional candidates Hagedorm and Feehan agree that broadband is important

In a contentious debate hosted and televised by KEYC, Minnesota’s First Congressional District candidates accused each other of misusing funding.

Republican incumbent Jim Hagedorn and Democratic challenger Dan Feehan previously ran for the 1st Congressional seat in 2018. Hagedorn won the seat by a slim 1,300 votes. The current race remains relatively close.

In a debate that sounds very contentious, they both agreed that broadband was important…

Feehan also believes broadband internet for all students is necessary, especially in light of the pandemic. He would later comment rural broadband was needed to promote job growth in southern Minnesota.

Rural broadband was the only point of agreement between the candidates. Hagedorn agreed broadband was important and said there would be bipartisan support for its expansion.
