RELEASE: HANNAH NICOLLET, FORMER INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR, ENDORSES JASON LEWIS

Sep 21, 2016

The Jason Lewis for Congress campaign today announced the endorsement of Hannah Nicollet, the 2014 Independent candidate for Minnesota Governor.

“Years of listening to Jason Lewis on the radio exposed me to insightful critiques of both Democrat and Republican legislation,” said Nicollet. “Whether cautioning against big government at home or in foreign affairs, Lewis advocated a comprehensive approach to public policy. His focus was and is beyond the author’s ‘good intentions’ to the law’s real impact and unintended consequences. It is this thoughtfulness, combined with his passion and depth of knowledge, that will serve him well in Congress. Minnesotans will be fortunate to have Jason Lewis as our representative.”

“Hannah has been a fierce advocate for commonsense economic and regulatory reforms, and I am honored to have her support in this critical race,” said Lewis. “Our district is ready for real changes that will ease the burden government has placed on hardworking Minnesotans, like cutting back on job-killing regulations, growing our economy, and making health care work again. We need true leadership in Washington that transcends party, and I am honored to work with independent leaders like Hannah toward solutions for our state.”

Jason Lewis spent his career in the private sector. First running a small family business founded by his grandfather, then working the next 25 years on the broadcast airwaves as an independent voice in the national political conversation by talking with fellow Minnesotans and Americans about solutions to our greatest problems. An active Minnesota resident for two decades, Lewis’ mother was born and raised in North Minneapolis and his wife Leigh is a St. Paul native. They have two daughters. Jason is also an author and public speaker. Lewis won his competitive, multi-candidate primary contest with 49% of the vote share on August 9, 2016.
