BRAINERD, Minn. (KNSI) Mills Fleet Farm vice president Stewart Mills launched a campaign for Congress Wednesday in Minnesota's 8th District.
The 41-year-old Republican from Nisswa plans to challenge D-F-L Congressman Rick Nolan in 2014. Mills is a gun rights advocate and opposes government regulation on businesses and what Republicans term Obamacare.
He released an open video letter to Nolan and U-S Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar in January criticizing federal gun control legislation.
Mills has campaign stops today in Cambridge and Duluth. This is his first run for political office.
