Republican John Howe is making it a three way race in the August Republican primary in Minnesota’s only open seat congressional race. Monday morning he announced he would run in the primary despite losing the Republican endorsement for Minnesota’s second congressional district to Jason Lewis earlier this month. Darlene Miller has also indicated she is running the Republican primary.
Howe called Lewis “a fatally flawed candidate” and cited that as the reason for running. Unlike Lewis, he doesn’t wholeheartedly endorse the apparent Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but said he wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
Asked about Lewis’ support of “bathroom bills” that discriminate against transgender people, Howe said he did not agree with him on that issue.
The winner of the primary will face Democrat Angie Craig in the fall.
