MINNESOTA — The Jason Lewis for Senate campaign says the candidate tested negative for COVID-19 Thursday after a week of self-quarantining. "I’m pleased to report that Congressman Lewis received another negative test result today after self-quarantining for over a week now. He’s been feeling fine, symptom free, and is looking forward to a return to the campaign trail in the coming days," said Communications Director Christine Snell.
Lewis attacked his Democratic opponent, Sen. Tina Smith, and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
"I can’t wait to get back on the road again because Minnesota voters deserve answers on things like packing the Supreme Court or holding up COVID relief — even if Joe Biden and Tina Smith don’t think so," Lewis said in a release.
Lewis began his second self-quarantine after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID earlier in October.
Lewis previously quarantined when President Donald Trump tested positive after his visit to the Twin Cities and Duluth last week.
