Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson will be the keynote speaker at the Minnesota Republican Party's April Lincoln-Reagan fundraising dinner.
Johnson is a businessman whose economic message helped him unseat Democrat Russ Feingold in 2010.
"He is exactly the type of citizen legislator we need more of in Washington. He’s fighting for economic growth and more jobs and against our country’s growing debt," Minnesota GOP chairman Pat Shortridge said in a statement.

The House GOP campaign committee said Thursday they are launching a TV ad against DFL candidate Andrew Carlson, as he runs in the special election to replace former Rep. Ann Lenczewski, the longtime DFL lawmaker who retired last year.
Chelsea Clinton made her first campaign stop in Minnesota Wednesday, visiting House DFL Leader Paul Thissen's south Minneapolis home with Gov. Mark Dayton to build support for her mother's presidential bid ahead of the March 1 caucuses.
