Robert Fitzgerald on Principles & Values

 


Millionaire 60-year-olds cannot legislate for young families

The average age in the US Senate is 60 years old. Forty of the 100 US Senators are multi-millionaires. The ability of this body to recognize the challenges that are unique to young people and young families is not there. And the legislation proves it. Burdens on families far surmount anything ever before. We need to return fairness and equitability to the US Senate.

Klobuchar & Kennedy's ads show you shouldn't vote for either

Fitzgerald has raised $6,300 for his campaign, receiving no contributions from PACs or the Independence Party. By comparison, Kennedy had raised $7.7 million & Klobuchar had raised $6.6 million. Fitzgerald portrays Klobuchar & Kennedy as bogged down in a mud-slinging advertising contest that obscures their stands on issues. "I think these two have done a great job letting Minnesotans know why they shouldn't vote for the other candidate, but not why they should vote for them," he said.
