Republican congressional candidate Stewart Mills is getting an endorsement from a business group.

Mills is running against Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan for the 8th District seat. On Thursday, Mills accepted the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). The event took place at London Road Rentals, where the owner is an NFIB member.

Mills said in the 8th District, job creation is rooted in small businesses.

"The vast majority of our job creators are our entrepreneurs, our small and our medium-sized business people," he said. "They are the ones that have the ability to create and to sustain the jobs that we need right here in Minnesota."

Mills is an NFIB member. He said policies that will help those business owners and job creators are needed in Washington, D.C.
