Stewart Mills looks to launch second congressional campaign

Former 2014 congressional candidate Republican Stewart Mills is thinking about giving it another go against 8th District incumbent Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan.

It was a close race, Mills losing by one percentage point. Rep. Nolan tallied 129,090 votes and Mills had 125,358.

Mills told the Star Tribune he’d make a decisive announcement in mid-October, and told KBJR'S Nick Minock on Wednesday he's "almost certainly" going to run in the 8th District.

He announced at an 8th District GOP event in Duluth that he’s forming a committee to weigh-in on another run.

Mills is also donning a new hairdo after cutting off those flowing, iconic locks featured in Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee attack ads, one depicting Mills as yachting, lobster-eating, boat shoe wearing millionaire.
