Joining the political scene in 2010, Lee Byberg when he tried running for U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 7th congressional district. He was born on August 26th, 1962 in Brazil, Paraguay, later moving to Norway. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in the year 1990. He is a member of the Republican party who lost to Collin Peterson after winning in the 2010 MN Republican Primary Election.  He even once said about him “He started as a good person, perhaps, but he has lost his way.”

This year, Lee Byberg will be rerunning for MN U.S. Representative for 7th district.  Byberg’s spokesman, David Strom, said on the topic that, “We’re acquiring the resources that will be necessary to do it and we’ve got a guy who has been around the block.”.

Byberg is running on financial preservation, he would have voted to repeal President Obama’s health care reform law and supports the Republican budget. He’d like to work on agriculture policy if elected, as Byberg says that the government has lost sight of what the farmers want and need. Nationally, Republicans want to defeat Peterson in order to make MN more receptive of what the Republicans believe should be done about the country.

Through December, Lee raised more money than all but one person in MN so far, and he has an large enough organization of supporters to secure his party’s endorsement on the first ballot. Though many would have preferred state Senator Gretchen Hoffman to win the party’s endorsement in the race, the National Republican Congressional Committee wanted it to be competitive, and had just finished running a week’s worth of ads against Peterson.
