Republicans back Bills for U.S. Senate
ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- First-term state Rep. Kurt Bills is the Minnesota Republican Party's pick to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Bills won on the second ballot with 1,353 votes, well ahead of Pete Hegseth with 439 and Dan Severson's 3`6.
The high school school economics teacher from Rosemount told 2,000 state convention delegates he is like David fighting the Goliath of Klobuchar and other Washington Democrats.
