Democrat Bohman to challenge U.S. Rep. Finstad

A former assistant county attorney and Rochester Township board member has entered the race to challenge GOP Rep. Brad Finstad in the Minnesota's 1st Congressional District election this November.


Rachel Bohman, a Democratic candidate, said she will focus on rising consumer prices, health care access and local business investment. She served on the Rochester Township Board from 2018 to 2022. Thus far, Bohman is the only Democratic candidate challenging Finstad.

Bohman lives in Rochester with her husband and two daughters.

In his first term as congressman, Finstad won a special election following the death of Jim Hagedorn in 2022 as well as the general election. Finstad won the general election with 53.8% of the vote.
