Jim Hagedorn has won the race for Minnesota's first congressional district.
According to a release from the Hagedorn camp, the Republican carried 16 of the 21 counties in the 1st Minnesota Congressional District. Hagedorn tallied 1,311 more votes than his opponent Dan Feehan (D). That number is just outside of the margin for an automatic recount.
Voter machine malfunctions in Mower County caused the result to be significantly delayed. Hagedorn will be sworn in on Jan. 3 2019.
