McFadden to deliver GOP's weekly address

August 7, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden will deliver the GOP's weekly rebuttal to President Obama.

The party's radio address is generally delivered by sitting lawmakers or governors, although some candidates have given it before. The choice of McFadden — even before Tuesday's election to settle the GOP nominee to challenge Democratic Sen. Al Franken — underlines his support in the national establishment.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office confirmed McFadden's address. His speech airs Saturday at 5 a.m.

McFadden has the state GOP endorsement and a big money advantage against state Rep. Jim Abeler and three lesser-known candidates.

Other Minnesota Republicans who have given the radio address include then-Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Rep. John Kline in 2009 and Rep. Erik Paulsen in 2010.
