Robin Carnahan on Environment

 


Brother's $107M wind project created 1000s of jobs statewide

Blunt pointed out that a wind-energy company headed by Carnahan's brother, Tom, had received a $107 million grant through the federal stimulus package. That money, Blunt said, created only 16 jobs. "Tell me if that's a good investment of money," Blunt said.

But Carnahan said the business created thousands of jobs around the state and accused Blunt of below-the-belt attacks. "I've got nothing to do with my brother's business," she said.

Provide stability and predictability to family farmers

Growing up in Rolla and continuing to oversee her family's cow-calf operation, Robin Carnahan understands the unique challenges facing rural Missouri. She will bring to Washington a commonsense view of what is needed to advance policies that not only provide stability and predictability to family farmers, but also boost profitability and economic opportunity.
