RightVoter serves as general consultant to both the Kistner and Johnson campaigns.

Kistner is a native Minnesotan and Marine Corps veteran who served in the Marine Special Operations Forces. MN-02 is currently represented by Representative Angie Craig.

Johnson is a small businessman who has called North Minneapolis home for more than 40 years. MN-05 is currently represented by Representative Ilhan Omar.

RightVoter partner Michael Biundo and associate Billy Grant made the following joint statement:

“RightVoter is fortunate to have two phenomenal congressional candidates in Minnesota this election cycle who are running strong campaigns focused on the important issues. Tyler Kistner is a veteran with an incredible story of service to our country. Lacy Johnson is a small businessman posted to put up a formidable challenge to Ilhan Omar. Both have successfully secured endorsements from the MNGOP and are poised to be strong general election candidates. We are proud to be working with Tyler and Lacy and look forward to continuing to fight along side them for victory as we head toward November.”
