Jason Lewis spoke to the crowd at Reagan Day at the Ranch, a Republican event held annually in Taylors Falls, in Chisago County last month.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis will self-quarantine and get tested again for COVID after exposure this week to a person who tested positive on Wednesday.

"Congressman Lewis is currently feeling fine and displaying no symptoms," read a statement from his campaign. "All campaign staffers who were in contact with congressman Lewis since Monday are also self-quarantining and will be tested."

Lewis is the Republican challenger to U.S. Sen. Tina Smith this year. He was one of a handful of prominent Minnesota Republicans who mingled with President Donald Trump in Minnesota last Wednesday - shortly before the president revealed his own COVID diagnosis.
