Minnesota Republican Challenger Airs First TV Ad
Posted at 12:23 p.m. on May 19
Minnesota Republican Stewart Mills went up on air Monday with a bio spot touting his commitment to replace President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Mills, whose family owns a popular hunting and sporting goods chain in the Midwest, says in the 30-second spot that he helps run the business’ healthcare program for the companies’ “thousands of employees” and therefore knows the healthcare overhaul needs to be replaced.
“Every day I see how Obamacare is hurting small businesses and the middle class. As your congressman, I’ll replace it,” Mills says in the ad.
Mills’ campaign said the ad will air in the Duluth and Twin Cities markets, but declined to comment on how much money is behind the buy. As of March 31, Mills had $356,000 in cash on hand.
First elected to Congress in 1974, Nolan won a comeback bid last cycle to return to Capitol Hill. He defeated GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack by a 9-point margin, while Obama carried the district with 52 percent.
