Today, the Cravaack for Congress Campaign released its third television ad in the race for Minnesota's 8th Congressional District seat.
"A strong and vibrant mining industry is key to creating good-paying jobs for Minnesota workers and their families. While former Congressman Rick Nolan believes EPA regulations are "job creators,' I disagree. In our twenty-first century 8th District economy, we must streamline the permitting process and address the overregulation of Washington bureaucrats, so projects like PolyMet can move forward. I am thankful for the support of so many former and current miners throughout this far-reaching district," said Chip Cravaack.
Jerry Gangl: I retired from Hanna Mining Company in 1993. I had worked there 43 years.
Chip being in a union really helped him to understand the steelworkers and iron mining industry.
John Finken: Chip's spent some time in the picket lines himself and Chip has been fighting very hard for us.
Gangl: Chip is really concerned about the Iron Range and pension problems.
Finken: All my life I grew up a Democrat but the exception to the rule is Chip Cravaack.
Gangl: Chip's a good man, very good man.
I'm Chip Cravaack, candidate for Congress, I approve this message.
