Woodbury Election Results: Kieffer Wins in House District 53B (Updated)

The incumbent Woodbury Republican is elected to a second term.

Republican Rep. Andrea Kieffer was re-elected Tuesday to the state House of Representatives, according to the unofficial results from the Secretary of State

The incumbent secured 54.84 percent of the vote in the win, defeating DFL challenger Ann Marie Metzger.

Kieffer had earned 12,060 votes to Metzger’s 9,909 (45.06 percent) in the House District 53B race.

Election night was somewhat “bittersweet” for Kieffer—despite her own victory Minnesota Republicans lost control of the House and Senate.

She said she would reach out to Senator-elect Susan Kent (District 53) and Representative-elect JoAnn Ward later today, and soon speak with fellow Republicans, as well.

“I’m looking forward to moving forward,” Kieffer said.

The incumbent said she ran a “consistent, positive” campaign and would remain focused on issues that are important to Woodbury residents.

“To me, it’s an honor to serve, and (the results) are a good rating of my job approval. And I’ll be reaching out to folks and letting them know how to get in touch with me and making sure they have a voice at the Capitol.” 

The district encompasses the bulk of Woodbury.

This will be Kieffer’s second term in the state House.

Thank you Andrea for running a fairer, kinder campaign. That you won by such a great margin speaks volumes for your integrity, and should be a reminder to others that campaigns which do not involve attacks and twisted truths can be successful!

Andrea won partly, because she is largely Pollyanna. She realizes that it is much easier to win an election, when you say nothing at all. If you look at her website, she takes no controversial stances what-so-ever. http://www.andreakieffer.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=24&Itemid=3
