The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of Pete Stauber for his election campaign to the U.S. House of Representatives in Minnesota's 8th congressional district on October 17, 2018.
After receiving a scholarship to play hockey at Lake Superior State University, Pete became the team captain and led the Lakers to a Division I National Championship in 1988. One major highlight of the victory was when Stauber and his teammates had the opportunity to visit the White House and meet Ronald Reagan in his final year as president. He would later go on to play for the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL.
Inspired by the community he served for more than two decades, Pete Stauber began his political career as a City Councilor in Hermantown. Then, in 2012, he defeated a 16-year incumbent to become a St. Louis County Commissioner. Pete is currently serving his second term on the St. Louis County Board.
