Gimse emphasizes his legislative record, touts work on Transportation Committee


WILLMAR -- As he campaigns in the new Senate District 17 this fall, Joe Gimse is emphasizing one constant: his record.

The Republican from Willmar, first elected to the Senate in 2006, is seeking another term. This time around, though, redistricting has shifted the landscape.

Gimse is now running in the newly formed District 17, which includes his home ground of Kandiyohi County but also now covers Chippewa and Swift counties.
