A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House 7A seat invited the community out on Friday.

Donna Bergstrom held a meet-and-greet at Valentini's. She said she wants to be accessible to the public during her campaign.

"I think it's really important to hear what is on the minds of the people of 7A," Bergstrom said. "So this is a way for me to invite people to come into my space, and I'm going to have a welcoming and honoring space for people to talk to me if they want."

Bergstrom is the only Republican to get in on the race so far for the seat held by the retiring Tom Huntley. She will be taking on DFL candidates Linda Krug, Gary Anderson and Pete Johnson.
