Retired Navy veteran Joe Fraser launches U.S. Senate run

Republican Joe Fraser has entered the race for the U.S. Senate, challenging incumbent Amy Klobuchar.

Fraser lives in Minnetrista, MN. He spent 26 years as a commissioned intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy, including assignments in Europe, the Far East and the Middle East, according to the campaign. In the years since, he has worked as a business consultant.

He launched his campaign with a statewide tour of Minnesota, starting Tuesday in Duluth

Fraser mentioned the Iron Range, saying in part, “When you talk about the contributions to the economy that the Iron Range provides, we need to take advantage of the resources that we have and put people to work harvesting the resources that we have here in the state.”

Fraser believes that Joe Biden won the presidential election in 2020, and although he is pro-life, he understands that it’s a women’s health issue and says we need to approach it with compassion.

Klobuchar, the Democratic incumbent, would be seeking her fourth term in the Senate representing Minnesota.
