Iron Rangers take McFadden’s pro-Chinese steel comments to front lawns

Hundreds of “McFadden Supports Chinese Steel” lawn signs pop up across Northern Minnesota

Outraged by investment banker Mike McFadden’s support for Chinese steel over Minnesota jobs, Iron Rangers took to their lawns today—hundreds of “McFadden Supports Chinese Steel” signs now grace lawns across northern Minnesota.

McFadden will be campaigning on the Range today at PolyMet in Hoyt Lakes. Here are a few lawn signs welcoming him.

“Every family in northern Minnesota is going to know that investment banker Mike McFadden’s first instinct was to sell their jobs to the cheapest bidder in China,” said DFL Chair Ken Martin. “Mike McFadden will not be able to run from his plans to use cheap Chinese steel to boost the profits of corporations—putting thousands of Minnesota jobs at risk—without  passing a few yard signs along the way.”

The investment banker has been under fire for weeks over his declaration that he would pick padding the profits of big corporations over Minnesota jobs and use Chinese steel to build the Keystone pipeline—even if it were just one penny cheaper.

Last weekend, McFadden landed on the front pages and led the local news across northern Minnesota after Iron Rangers sounded off on his out of touch position at a press conference in Virginia.
