REBUILDING OUR ECONOMY
Earlier this year, before the pandemic struck, our economy was churning at historic levels. Thanks to pro-growth policies, unemployment was the lowest it had been since before we landed on the Moon. Small businesses were surging with record optimism. Consumer confidence was at all-time highs. Wages were rapidly rising. Our economy was chugging along as Minnesotans went to work.
Then a global pandemic struck, and many of our businesses were forced to close and our economy shuddered. Despite the pandemic and the state government’s response, we are on the cusp of the great American comeback.
We are recovering, and our economy is rebuilding. We added 9.3 million jobs from May-July, but this is the only beginning. There is still more work to be done. We know how to get our economy moving again, and when we do we will be a stronger, more resilient, and self-reliant country.
Pete appreciates what job creators and small businesses do for our economy. Nearly 30 years ago, Pete teamed up with his brother to fulfill a dream of opening a small business that encompassed one of their passions: hockey. Pete’s small business experience and knowledge are needed in Washington, where we need more people in Congress who have signed the front of the check and not the back.
In Washington, Pete is working alongside President Trump to unleash the economic engine in the 8th district to create jobs and help working families recover. Pete is fighting for projects like the Line 3 replacement and Twin Metals and Polymet that would cause a blue-collar boom across the region.
