Kevin Kocina is a lifelong resident of southern Minnesota and a proud Republican. He currently resides just nine miles west of Red Wing in the small town of Miesville.
Kevin has never been comfortable sitting on the sidelines while others sacrifice in his place. Upon graduating from high school, Kevin immediately thrust himself into service by joining the United States Marine Corps.
After leaving the Marine Corps in 2013 with an honorable discharge, Kevin plunged himself right back into work, becoming a union pipefitter back home in southern Minnesota.
Whether at home or abroad, Kevin has always fought for and defended the values he lives by: hard work, dedication to others, and self-determination.
This is why he is running for Congress in Minnesota's 1st Congressional District
