Feehan lost in 2018 to now congressman Jim Hagedorn by 1,315 votes. In December of 2018, Congresswoman and chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DRCC), Cheri Bustos (D-IL) said that she hopes Dan Feehan will run again in 2020.
Feehan says he “hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which he also calls “the finest state in the union” and is a graduate of Georgetown University. Feehan says he was born in St. Paul and grew up in Red Wing, Minnesota. However, other sources, such as the Chicago Tribune, note he grew up in Batavia, Illinois. Feehan has moved back and forth between Washington D.C, Illinois, Indiana, and Minnesota, following various jobs including teaching positions and White House Fellowships.
NRCC spokeswoman Carly Atchison states that Feehan’s “support for single-payer health care and infanticide is wildly out of touch with Minnesota” and they feel strongly that because “Feehan was rejected by Minnesotans last November [he] will be rejected again in 2020.”
