During a May 22 appearance on Detroit Lakes' KDLM radio, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Mike McFadden was asked what lessons from his business career he's taking with him on the campaign trail.
McFadden, who most recently worked as co-CEO of a Minneapolis-based investment bank, replied, "Well, I think I've gained some very, very, very relevant experience. Jake, one, in the business you have to be results-oriented, you have to be people-oriented, you have to know how to motivate. I know what it's like to make a payroll, I know what it's like to provide healthcare for my employees
