Kurt Bills, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, says he’ll visit all of Minnesota’s 87 counties in the next 36 days, to take his campaign directly to the voters.
In an email announcing the tour, Bills’ campaign says he’s doing it because “the elite media is pretending that there is not a race for the U.S. Senate seat held by Amy Klobuchar.”
Klobuchar, seeking a second term, is leading by a considerable margin in the polls.
Bills is kicking off the state tour today in Crow Wing and Itasca counties.
Bills’ campaign manager, Mike Osskopp, said in a statement:
“Minnesotans are hungering for real discussion of the issues facing our country. Since Klobuchar was elected unemployment has doubled, gas prices have doubled, and the national debt has doubled. Yet the mainstream media elite is not talking about the tough issues facing our country, and hasn’t asked Klobuchar to explain how she will address these issues.”
