Republican candidate for senate Mike McFadden made a handful of stops in the northland today as part of his "Growth and Prosperity" tour. 

McFadden and his supporters walked in the Mountain Iron Merritt Days parade Saturday afternoon. Before that, he visited various local businesses to talk Washington frustrations with customers. 

He also gave the National Republican Address to the nation Saturday. He says mining was a key topic.  

"What I talked about was PolyMet and the need to get these mines open up here. It's very, very important to the people of Minnesota, and I'm going to fight for the miners and I'm going to fight for the region," McFadden said. 

McFadden and Jim Abeler are the leading contenders in the Minnesota primary race for Senate. The winner of Tuesday's primary will likely face incumbent Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.)
