As the tag indicates, this Mike McFadden shirt was made in Nicaragua.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden talks a lot about the importance of jobs. For instance, in recent weeks, he's said things like, "Senator [Franken] along with President Obama have waged a war on jobs in this country," and, "I've created jobs. That's what I do. I have a record of 20 years of doing that, and I look forward to that conversation."

So eyebrows were raised when McFadden's campaign distributed shirts at the MNGOP convention in Rochester that were made in Nicaragua.

And here's a bunch of prominent Republicans proudly wearing the shirt around the convention: We contacted the McFadden campaign about the shirts. According to spokesman Tom Erickson, McFadden's shirts are typically made by a Minnesota company named Realm Promotions. He even passed along this photo for proof:
