The 2018 United States House of Representatives elections in Minnesota were held on November 6, 2018, to elect the eight U.S. Representatives from the state of Minnesota, one from each of the state's eight congressional districts. The elections coincided with an open gubernatorial election, a U.S. Senate election, a special U.S. Senate election, State House elections, and other elections.

In the 2018 elections, Democrats gained the 2nd and 3rd districts from Republicans (both gains being by defeat of incumbents), and the Republicans gained the 1st and 8th districts from Democrats (both gains being open seats), effectively leaving the state's federal House delegation unchanged at 5 members from the DFL and 3 members from the GOP.

District 1[edit]

Minnesota's 1st Congressional District extends across southern Minnesota from the border with South Dakota to the border with Wisconsin. Democrat Tim Walz, who has represented the district since 2007, was re-elected with 50% of the vote in 2016. He did not run for re-election to the U.S. House in 2018, instead opting to run for Governor.

Republican Jim Hagedorn faced DFL candidate Dan Feehan in the general election. Minnesota's 1st congressional district was listed as one of the NRCC's initial targets in 2018.[1]
