Navy veteran Joe Fraser announces GOP challenge to Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Minnesota's Duluth  — Joe Fraser, a Republican and a political newbie who served in the United States Navy, began a flimsy campaign on Tuesday to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who has served for three terms.

The 50-year-old Fraser, who hails from Minnetrista on the Twin Cities' western border, began his campaign with a media tour that stopped in Duluth on Tuesday and was scheduled to visit Moorhead, Rochester, and Mankato on Wednesday.

The president's website read: "We must work to put an end to the crises at our borders, to tackle rising consumer prices and our historic national debt, and to ensure our streets and country are safe from those who wish to cause us harm." Fraser repeated these demands.

Throughout his 26 years of service, Fraser was deployed to several locations in the Far East, Europe, Haiti, and the Middle East, as stated on his webpage. 

The article states that his most recent position was at the Aviation Warfighting Development Center of the Navy, where he oversaw information warfare. After his time in the military ended, he found employment in the banking and business industries.

It will be difficult to unseat the well-liked Klobuchar, who sought and failed to receive the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. As of October 1st, her campaign's bank account had almost $4 million. In 2018, she defeated former state representative Jim Newberger by a whopping 24 percentage points, continuing her streak of smooth victories.

The Federal Elections Commission has received registration forms from four additional Republican candidates. Until October 1st, not a single one of them had any cash on hand. The clock is ticking on Klobuchar's tenure, and no one in office so far has shown any interest in challenging her. The precinct caucuses, which are the initial stage of the endorsement process in Minnesota, take place on February 27.

After Tim Pawlenty's reelection as governor in 2006, no Republican has taken Minnesota by storm.
