Jordan Rasmusson’s column titled “How I Became a Conservative” gives me and the Republican Party of Otter Tail County hope for the future. Since Jordan’s time in Cuba, he has fought for conservative values and has become a nationally recognized leader within the conservative movement. I thank Rasmusson for sharing his story and hope it will inspire others to join the conservative cause and get involved in our local party. As Democrat politicians veer toward socialism, we need leaders like Rasmusson who can shine light on the false promises and failures of socialism and make the case for conservative principles.
Chair, Otter Tail County Republicans
