Despite Nolan retirement, Mills says no new bid for Congress
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Republican Stewart Mills says he won’t run for Congress again despite Rep. Rick Nolan’s retirement.
Mills said in November he wouldn’t challenge Nolan, a Democrat, for a third time. When Nolan recently announced plans to retire, Mills said he was reconsidering.
But Mills said in a Facebook posting Tuesday that he’d decided against it.
Several Democrats have expressed interest in the northeast Minnesota seat. Pete Stauber, a St. Louis County commissioner and retired Duluth police officer, is running on the Republican side.
