Kurt Bills is ready to teach economics to Washington.

Backing his theme of "taking economics 101 to Washington," Minnesota Republicans Friday handed Bills a second-ballot endorsement for U.S. Senate to run against Democrat U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

It wasn't close among the 2,000 state convention delegates: Bills won with 64 percent of state party convention vote, well ahead of 21 percent for Dan Severson and 15 percent for Pete Hegseth.
