HASTINGS, Minn. – With the Senate District 54 special election a little over one week away, Minnesota Family Council is sponsoring a candidate forum to give residents an opportunity to learn candidates’ positions on important issues.
On February 5, residents of Senate District 54 will be able to get to know the candidates running to fill the senate seat vacated by former Sen. Dan Schoen who resigned last year following allegations of sexual misconduct. All three candidates have been invited, and Republican Denny McNamara has confirmed.
“The outcome of this special election on February 12th may decide which party holds the majority in the Minnesota Senate which means that the current pro-life majority in the Minnesota Senate may be at risk in this race,” Minnesota Family Council’s Director of Communication Stephani Liesmaki told Alpha News. “It’s crucial that Christians in the Afton, Cottage Grove, Hastings, Newport, South St. Paul, and St. Paul Park areas attend the informative Candidate Forum on Monday, February 5th, and get out to vote in this special election on February 12th.”
The candidate forum will take place on February 5th at The Harbor Church in Hastings at 7pm.
“Life, family, and religious freedom are core concerns for people of faith, and these issues could be impacted by the outcome of this special election,” Liesmaki said. “At Minnesota Family Council, we’re encouraging Christians in Minnesota to be faithful voters, faithful to get out and vote according to their faith. When this happens, life wins, family wins, and religious freedom wins.”
