ALEXANDRIA — State Rep. Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, announced Monday, April 25, that she will run for re-election in the new House District 12B.

The district, which includes more than half of the existing House District 8B, includes portions of Douglas, Pope, and Stearns County.

"While my district lines have shifted a bit, it doesn't change the fact that I am honored to represent truly the best constituents in the state, and hope to continue serving next year when we elect a conservative House Republican majority, a Republican Senate and Republican governor," Franson said in a news release.

"Throughout my career, I've championed conservative values, freedom and personal liberty, protecting life from the moment of conception until natural death, medical freedom and stopping oppressive vaccine mandates, protecting gun rights, fighting fraud and waste in government, lower taxes, and more," Franson said.

Franson, who was first elected in 2010, has dominated her elections in recent years, consistently earning more than 60% of the vote. She currently serves as the Republican lead on the House Early Childhood Committee, and previously served as chair of the House Subcommittee on Childcare Access and Affordability.
