GOP endorses Tad Jude for congressional seat Dean Phillips is leaving

Republicans endorsed longtime politician Tad Jude in a convention this weekend, hoping he wins the suburban Third Congressional District for Republicans for the first time since 2016.

Republicans held the seat for almost 60 years until Rep. Dean Phillips was elected in 2018. Phillips announced last year he would not seek re-election as he ran a long-shot campaign for president. State Sen. Kelly Morrison, DFL-Deephaven, is the sole Democrat in the race to replace Phillips.

"I am humbled and honored to have earned your endorsement and trust!!" Jude wrote in a post on X, writing that he hoped to move the district back to the Republican column.
