Five years after Dan Wolfe visited Washington D.C. during a government shutdown to meet with Northland’s lawmakers, including the then-new Minnesota 8th District Congressman Pete Stauber, Wolfe returned to the capital. Stauber, now a seasoned member of Congress with three terms under his belt, faces pressing issues that impact both the local and national stage.

In a recent visit, Wolfe caught up with Stauber amid the bustling environment of Washington D.C., filled with visitors and students from Ely exploring the city’s landmarks. Stauber took the time to meet with these young constituents, offering them insights into the workings of the government.

Stauber’s journey from a newcomer to an experienced lawmaker sees him running for a fourth term despite a backdrop of events such as a pandemic, a presidential election, and an insurrection. His day, packed with meetings and legislative duties, mirrors the ongoing efforts to address the country’s challenges, including a long-term budget deal.

Central to Stauber’s agenda is border security, a topic he’s passionately addressed since his early days in office. He’s visited the U.S.-Mexico border three times, emphasizing the need for a more secure border and critiquing President Biden’s policies. Despite the criticism, Stauber insists on addressing border security, linking it to challenges within his district.

Another topic of contention has been Stauber’s support for a $1 billion federal investment in the Blatnik Bridge reconstruction despite voting against the funding bill. Critics, including Governor Walz and President Biden, have pointed out the contradiction. Still, Stauber defends his stance, stressing the importance of fighting for federal projects regardless of his vote on the bill.

Stauber remains focused on mining activity, or the lack thereof, in the Iron Range. As Chair of the House Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee, he advocates for copper-nickel mining, believing it will eventually commence.

The attempted acquisition of US Steel by Japanese company Nippon Steel has sparked concerns among union leaders and lawmakers. Stauber, however, prefers a cautious approach, awaiting the outcome of a governmental review before taking a definitive stance.

Stauber’s commitment to advocating for individuals with Down Syndrome, inspired by his son Isaac, underscores his dedication to issues beyond politics. He emphasizes recognizing abilities rather than disabilities, showcasing his connection to advocacy.

Stauber’s tenure in office aligns with an upheaval in American politics. The upcoming election will determine whether he continues to serve the 8th Congressional District. His experiences and actions reflect the complexities of governing in today’s polarized environment.
