Minnesota’s 8th (MN - 08)

Updated: October 30, 2016

Narrative

Stewart Mills is a multi-millionaire who is out of touch with the everyday struggle people go through just to make ends meet. He supports policies that would hurt Minnesota families and seniors.

Proof Points

In the Duluth area, voters need to hear that Mills is an out-of-touch-multi-millionaire who has said we should be “putting all options on the table,” when it comes to Social Security. Mills would consider means testing, raising the retirement age, and would even consider privatizing the entire Social Security system, handing it over to Wall Street, and risking it on the stock market. (BACKUP)

In the Duluth area, voters also need to hear that Mills took thousands from corporate interests that receive tax breaks for shipping American jobs overseas. Voters should hear Mills in his own words behind closed doors, announcing to his wealthy contributors his support for even more unfair trade, saying, “I’m for free trade, and uh, we need a free trade agreement. We need to be part of the Asia-Pacific Alliance.” [Stewart Mills, 9/10/16] (BACKUP)

In the Minneapolis area, voters not only need to hear about how Mills is an out-of-touch-millionaire who has said we should be “putting all options on the table,” when it comes to Social Security. Mills would consider means testing, raising the retirement age, and would even consider privatizing the entire Social Security system, handing it over to Wall Street, and risking it on the stock market. Rick Nolan’s legislation to give seniors more money in their Social Security checks was endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. (BACKUP)

In the Minneapolis area, voters not only need to know about Mills taking contributions from corporate interests and telling his contributors he supports even more unfair trade, but they need to know that the Duluth Union Tribune and Minnesota’s steelworkers have endorsed Rick Nolan. He’s been called a “steel champion. ”Nolan’s “Buy American” plan bans illegal foreign steel dumping and protects America’s hard-working families. (BACKUP)
