The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association has endorsed State Representative Jeff Backer’s reelection to the Minnesota House of Representatives.
“Law enforcement officers put themselves in the line of fire to keep our communities safe. We should be thanking them, not attacking them,” said Backer, who has opposed calls for defunding or disarming the police. Backer is a Republican from Browns Valley representing District 12A. He was first elected in 2014 and previously served as mayor of Browns Valley.
