Amanda travelled 600 miles to reach 5 county conventions on Saturday, March 12. She spoke at Meeker, Todd, Yellow Medicine, Pipestone, and Stevens counties. Former BPOU Chair Gale Anderson and former Minnesota State Representative Diane Anderson helped to reach Murray and Cottonwood counties as well as Yellow Medicine. Former BPOU Chair Will Blasczyk made it to Grant and Wilkin counties. BPOU Chair and former District Chair Judie Rosendahl was able to speak on her behalf at Lac qui Parle. Unfortunately, we were unable to get to Traverse County in time. Amanda could not have made it around without the help of campaign scheduler Jacqi Glenn who drove her to the events! A big thank you to all who helped!

According to the ARCCoM website, it’s unique definition of trade and commerce includes educational services and exchanges, cultural and artistic tourism, and other initiatives mutually beneficial to Minnesota and Russian speaking businesses and organizations.
Members have a wealth of experience, doing business in both Russia and the United States. They possess expertise in the fields of science, education, information technologies, immigration law and other business-related fields. Hinson has been a long-time advocate for positive American-Russian relations and cultural understanding.
“It is truly an honor to be a part of ARCCoM,” Hinson said following the meeting. “Where I come from, in the 7th District, we have manufacturing and farming industries that have historically traded with Russia. I look forward to contributing to the expansion of opportunities for our farmers and businesses here in Minnesota."
Hinson (R-Long Prairie) Spoke at the Clay County Caucus at Moorhead High School
Moorhead - Amanda Lynn Hinson, candidate for Congress in MN-7, spoke to Republican attendees at Tuesday night’s precinct caucus gathering in Clay County at Moorhead High School.
“Last night Minnesotans expressed their frustration with the status quo in Washington, and I am grateful for the very welcome reception I received in Moorhead from voters receptive to our small government, conservative Republican message.” said Hinson.
"With Hillary Clinton as the leading Democrat candidate for President, Republicans and Independents are afraid of the possibility Washington will continue to spend more, become less efficient and add to the debt,” Hinson said. “Hillary emerged in 1991, shortly after Collin Peterson took office and our nation’s debt stood at $3.6 trillion. Over two decades later, that debt has swelled to over $19 trillion, and yet the same Democrats are looking to stay in power in Washington. I'm ready for a change, and I believe this district is too."
Born in Aberdeen, S.D., Hinson grew up in Minnesota and graduated from Perham High School. She has worked as an advocate and pastor for youth and orphans for the last 14 years. Previously, she ran a video production business, worked as the One-Act play director at Perham High School, and served in leadership for the 7th Congressional District Republican Party.
Hinson earned a degree in mass communications from North Central University in Minneapolis, graduating with honors. Prior to earning her Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate from Hamline University’s Graduate School, Amanda studied Russian at the Far East State Transport University in Khabarovsk.
She and her husband Steve were married in July 2001. Together, they have four children: Aurora, Riles, Iva, and Michael. They reside in Long Prairie of Todd County where Amanda serves on the District Advisory Committee for Long Prairie Schools.
