Former Rosemount City Council member and current first-term Republican State Rep. Kurt Bills highlighted his experience as a high school math teacher as he announced his campaign for U.S. Senate Thursday.

At a news conference in downtown Rosemount, Bills talked about the importance of shrinking the national debt and addressing deficit spending.

“I’ve watched in great detail as the various deficits and debts that our country has have grown into shockingly large proportions of our overall economy,” he said. “It doesn’t seem to matter who’s in charge. The mismanagement of our entitlements, the loss of the purchasing power of our wages and our national debt figures have only gotten worse it seems as time goes on.”

Bills criticized DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar for supporting government bailout programs.

“I’ve watched in great detail as the various deficits and debt that our country has have grown into shockingly large proportions of our overall economy,” he said. “It doesn’t seem to matter who’s in charge. The mismanagement of our entitlements, the loss of the purchasing power of our wages and our national debt figures have only gotten worse as time goes on.”

Bills offered no details on how he would address the national debt. He also didn’t say how much money he thought he would need for his Senate campaign.

He joins Dan Severson and Pete Hegseth in seeking the Republican endorsement to run against Klobuchar. All three men say they will abide by the endorsement.
