State Rep. Bills Weighs US Senate Run In Minn.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A freshman Republican state legislator says he’s weighing a campaign for U.S. Senate this fall and could announce his intentions this week.

Rep. Kurt Bills of Rosemount isn’t saying whether he’d run as a Republican or campaign as a libertarian. Bills told reporters Monday that he has been studying the race for months.

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar is considered a favorite in a field. Her Republican challenger won’t be known for months; state Rep. Dan Severson and war veteran Pete Hegseth are among those vying for the GOP nod.

Bills was elected to the Minnesota House in 2010. Last month, he campaigned for Texas Rep. Ron Paul ahead of Minnesota’s presidential caucus. That gave Bills a toehold with libertarian-style conservatives who helped Paul to a second-place Minnesota finish.

    We need a fiscal conservative. Klobuchar is liberal who does nothing about spending and America’s $17 trillion debt.

  2. the old nurse says:

    The Bush tax cuts without a reduction in spending has cost the rest of the taxpayers more money than Obama has.

  3. questioning says:

    Hey, did the MN Republican Party ever get out of that million dollar debt they ran up? That shows just how fiscal conservatives operate. Reckless borrow and spend.

  4. Ordinary Guy says:

    This state needs EARNINGS, dramatic reductions just get us lousy public service and infrastructure. If all able workers had the opportunity, they’d be paying enough tax to cover the costs.

    Stop letting imported goods and services in tax-free. You can’t subsidize your competitors and have taxpaying jobs too. One politician’s as bad as another if they’re going to ignore the basics.
