Spokesman Apologizes For Letter Claiming Poliquin Saved Jobs At Mill That Closed in 2015

12 hours ago

A spokesman for Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin says a letter taking credit for saving jobs at a mill that later closed was sent to constituents "in error."

The spokesman tells the Morning Sentinel that Poliquin and his staff have apologized for the mistake.

The letter says Poliquin successfully fought against subsidies hurting the mill but didn't mention that the mill closed in 2016 and laid off about 215 people.
