The seventh district congressional candidate held her watch party at VIP Pizza in Superior. 

“I’m just really excited about what we built here throughout this campaign season," Engebretson said.  

Engebretson was running against four-term republican congressman Sean Duffy and independent candidate Ken Driessen. Duffy was declared the winner with 60 percent of votes. Engebretson had 38 percent of votes. Driessen had one percent of votes.

"We ran a grassroots campaign and I’m very pleased. I think we made a lot of connections out all across the seventh congressional district, places that people haven’t gone to in a long time. We talked with folks and asked them what’s on their minds and what their concerned about and that was very valuable,” Engebretson said.

Engebretson said she felt thankful for all her supporters.

“I’m just really grateful that they came out and worked so hard and when we all come together and unite, a lot of good things can happen,” Engebretson said.
