American Action Network Targets Rick Nolan (MN-08) with $600,000 Campaign

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today announced they will be spending $600,000 in Minnesota’s 8th congressional district race between far-left liberal Congressman Rick Nolan and center-right candidate Stewart Mills. The independent expenditures will include broadcast TV ads in the Minneapolis-St. Paul media market and digital advertising in late October. 

“Minnesota families can’t afford Rick Nolan’s 1970’s radical and liberal agenda that includes an even more extreme version of Obamacare: single payer health care,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for American Action Network. “Minnesotans who value jobs, affordable energy and 2nd amendment rights should look no further than center-right rising star Stewart Mills who will stand and fight in Congress for Minnesota’s work and way of life.” 

This is part of a first round of announced spending decisions totaling $8 Million in nine districts across the country along with AAN’s sister organization, the Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC. During the 2012 election cycle, independent expenditures of AAN and CLF were rated the #1 and #2 Highest “Return on Investment” of any conservative outside spenders. 

The American Action Network is a 501(c)(4) 'action tank' that creates, encourages and promotes center-right policies based on the principles of freedom, limited government, American exceptionalism, and strong national security. The American Action Network's primary goal is to put our center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American people and spurring them into action to advance our center-right policy agenda. The Network is chaired by former Senator Norm Coleman (MN) and its board includes Fred Malek, former Congressman Tom Reynolds (NY), and former Congressman Vin Weber (MN).
