Mills was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-fifty, Seventy-sixth, and Seventy-seventh Congresses (January 3, 1937 – January 3, 1943). He unseated Representative Riley J. Wilson of Catahoula Parish in the 1936 Democratic primary. In 1942, however, he was himself defeated for renomination by Charles E. McKenzie, a native of DeSoto Parish who had relocated to Monroe. In 1950, Mills and Malcolm Lafargue, the former U.S. attorney for the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, based in Shreveport, waged unsuccessful intraparty challenges to U.S. Senator Russell B. Long, son of the legendary Huey Pierce Long, Jr. Mills resumed his involvement in oil and natural gas, cotton planting, and a building-supply company. He was a resident of Monroe until his death there at the age of ninety-six on May 15, 1996. (en)
