Former Republican U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis participated at a debate at the TPT studios in St. Paul, in 2018. Lewis is challenging U.S. Sen. Tina Smith in November.

While Minnesota plunged into lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis wasted no time disputing the breadth of the restrictions.
