State Representative Kurt Bills has won the Republican nomination for Senate in Minnesota. He will face off against Amy Klobuchar, the Democratic incumbent.
Kurt Bills is 42 years old, has been married for 17 years, has 4 children, and owns a home daycare. While Kurt has been in the state legislature for little over a year, he has been a high school economics teacher for the past 15 years, ingraining free market virtues in students year after year. Bills is anything but a career politician and understands the problems of average Americans.
Kurt Bills’ main platform is naturally promoting sound economic policies and fiscal responsibility. He supports a balanced budget, simplifying the tax code and lowering taxes, rolling back costly regulations, free trade, and stopping inflation and preventing credit bubbles. If elected, Kurt will be one of the leading economic experts in the Senate. Additionally, he will work to get government out of our healthcare market, and wants to reform Social Security. On social issues, Bills is strongly pro-life and supports marriage between a man and a woman. With regards to foreign policy, he supports Ronald Reagan’s “peace through strength” policy and understands that while we must have a strong national defense, we cannot intervene into every part of the world; Bills supports ending foreign aid.
This is going to be an important Senate race. Klobuchar voted for unpopular legislation such as the Affordable Care Act and the Protect IP Act. Bills will need funding, so I encourage that organizations such as FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth, and the Senate Conservatives Fund be contacted to pour money into this race.
