This week, Jason Lewis, the Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s Second District, toured businesses and farms across the district. Lewis also accepted an endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) while touring an NFIB business.

“It was a pleasure to visit local businesses and farms this week on our jobs tour. If you want to see how America works – visit a family farm or a small business. These are the backbone of our economy.

As I talk with business leaders in our district, I hear the same concerns often: overregulation by the federal government, high taxes and the stranglehold Obamacare has placed on hiring. If we want to grow our economy and restore jobs, we need to cut back on job-killing regulations, fix our tax code and make healthcare affordable again. That’s what I’ll do as your next member of Congress, and you can count on me to work tirelessly on behalf of Minnesota’s small businesses and hardworking families.

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.
