Reader Opinion: Embarrassing

Representative Heintzeman should spend more time working for the people of Crow Wing County and not campaigning in Shakopee against candidates in his own party.

Recently it has come to my attention that Josh Heintzeman has taken it upon himself to campaign against constitutional conservative Erik Mortensen.

Representative Heintzeman showed up at Representative Mortensen’s house and talked to his wife. Representative Heintzeman told her why she shouldn’t vote for Representative Mortensen, not knowing who she was. He even passes out his official House of Representatives card. So Mr. Heintzeman, rather than campaign against someone in your own party down in Shakopee, spreading false information about how many people you need in your caucus, you should spend time working for the people of Crow Wing County! This is embarrassing!
