Now that Hillary Clinton has locked up the Democrat nomination supposedly and all the people who were feeling the Bern are feeling jaded we get to see just who is in charge of Rep. Rick Nolan. After it became apparent that Hillary would lock up the nomination he stepped right in line with the party. Going so far as to tell MinnPost that Hilary's win is "a great victory for the country." It is clear that Nolan is a party man and can't think for himself and will do as the party tells him.
Even now Rep. Nolan is stepping in line with the party as the president calls for the "No Fly, No Buy" law, which even the ACLU has said is unconstitutional and violates due process. But there is Nolan trying to take our rights away from us.
But fear not people of Northern Minnesota you can be assured we will see plenty of ads with Rep. Nolan wearing blaze orange and sitting in a duck boat. Telling all of us he supports gun rights.
Nolan also claims he is a friend to the mining community but when it comes time to make a decision between jobs and mining on the Iron Range or more environmental regulation demanded by the party, guess where he sides, that's right, Party Man Rick! He also actively supports other candidates who are anti-mining because that is what the party required.
It's time for the people of northern Minnesota to get a representative who will stand up for us, our issues, our jobs, our way of life and most importantly our rights. Not a puppet of the party who doesn't care about the Constitution.
