Rep. Steve Drazkowski, R-Mazeppa, has rocketed from conservative backbencher to a leading Minnesota critic of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, his former colleague in the Legislature.

State Rep. Steve Drazkowski tells a story about getting soaked in a rainstorm on his way to a TV studio in Minneapolis for an appearance on Fox News. People don't use umbrellas where he comes from in rural Minnesota, he says.

In Drazkowski's telling, he's just a guy from the sticks, raised on a farm. "If we did well," he said, "we got supper."
