A freshman state lawmaker says he’s considering a run for the U.S. Senate and may announce his plans later this week.
Rep. Kurt Bills, R-Rosemount, says he’s been weighing a possible run for several months. Although he’s a Republican he didn’t rule out running as a Libertarian.
Bills was first elected to the House in 2010. He campaigned for Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential bid during last month’s precinct caucuses.
DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar is running for re-election. Two Republicans, Dan Severson and Pete Hegseth, are already running.
