EVELETH, MINNESOTA ~~~~ August 31, 2020 (LSN) — Following a roundtable discussion on Iron Range issues with Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe, Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich, and Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich (who was interviewed on Fox News this morning), United States Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement.
“I’ve been on the Iron Range countless times since launching our campaign a year ago and I’m proud to be back today chatting with outstanding leaders like these Mayors. I am humbled to have the support of Larry, Bob, and Andrea in my campaign to represent Minnesotans and the Iron Range in the United States Senate. It speaks volumes about how radical Democrats in D.C. and St. Paul have become when even lifelong Democrats here on the Iron Range are willing to stand up and endorse Republicans for federal offices,” Lewis said.
“Republicans like President Trump, Congressman Stauber, and me are 100% committed to protecting the Iron Range way of life. It’s a crime that we are sitting on the largest reserves of copper and nickel in the world, and DFL radicals like Betty McCollum and my opponent Senator Tina Smith won’t let them be safely mined. We need to get the Iron Range moving again and will do just that when I’m your next United States Senator,” Lewis concluded.
Today’s roundtable and statement comes just three days after Democratic mayors on the Iron Range issued an endorsement of President Trump and Vice President Pence at a “Workers for Trump” rally held by Vice President Pence in Duluth.
Following the roundtable, Lewis is making two more stops on the Iron Range today: touring Polymet this afternoon and hosting a joint rally with Congressman Pete Stauber in Hoyt Lakes this evening.
