MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Democratic Rep. Tim Walz has won a fifth term in Congress in southern Minnesota’s 1st District, defeating Blue Earth businessman Jim Hagedorn.

Walz has been a leading Democrat in the House on veterans and agricultural issues. He’s a former Mankato West High School teacher and retired command sergeant major in the National Guard.

Hagedorn, whose father represented some of the same territory in Congress from 1975 until 1983, pulled off an upset win over endorsed candidate Aaron Miller in the GOP primary in August. But Hagedorn, who spent much of his career at the Treasury Department in Washington, struggled to raise money.

The 1st District runs across Minnesota’s southern border and leans Republican.
