Chris Swedzinski Brings Southwestern Minnesota
Values to St. Paul


I am proud to call Minnesota home, but believe we can make our great state even better. That’s why I ran on a three-point plan that will improve state government by lowering taxes, reducing the size of government and empowering every individual.


You can learn more about my views on the issues below. I appreciate your continued support!





Fighting for Rural Minnesota


As a farmer and a resident of rural Minnesota, it has been a priority of mine to ensure the needs of Greater Minnesota are heard at the Capitol. Thanks to the efforts of myself and colleagues in the House, rural Minnesota was front and center in St. Paul:


Historic funding for broadband internet expansion

Strengthening 2nd Amendment rights

Protecting the unborn

Enabling school districts in Greater Minnesota to repair school buildings and property with additional facilities maintenance funding

Fought the avian flu epidemic and invested in programs to prevent such events from occurring in the future

Prioritized agriculture education in local colleges to prepare the next generation of farmers and special education paraprofessionals with licenser.

Transportation – invest $700 million in roads and bridges across the state as well as critical public works projects


I am proud of the strides we made the last two years to strengthen our schools and ensure that every child in Minnesota has the opportunity to receive a world-class education. Thanks to efforts from the House we were able to secure important reforms to the teacher licensure process in order to address the teacher shortage facing so many of our rural schools. In addition to these important policy reforms, we passed a bipartisan education budget that dedicates funding towards proven programs that will help make Minnesota’s already outstanding schools even better! 

Drake’s Law Signed Into Law


I was honored to author a bill signed by the governor that strengthens Minnesota’s drunk driving conviction laws by increasing the maximum sentence for criminal vehicular homicide.

This bill was named “Drake’s Law” in honor of a young boy, who was tragically killed by a repeat drunk driver in 2012. 

Standing up for Veterans


I have been a long supporter of our veterans and am proud to share that thanks to leadership from the House, pension benefits earned by veterans will no longer be subject to state taxes. This is the right thing to do for the brave men and women that sacrificed so much to keep our nation safe.



I believe that life begins at conception and should be protected until natural death. I am a pro-life, fiscal and social conservative.
