Nolan wins DFL endorsement in 8th District

Rick Nolan, a former U.S. Congress member from 1975 to 1981, has won the DFL endorsement to run against Rep. Chip Cravaack in the Eighth Congressional District. Nolan garnered a commanding 76 percent of first-round ballots during the endorsing convention on Saturday night in Duluth. But Nolan will face an August primary challenge. Duluth Councilman Jeff Anderson and former State Sen. Tarryl Clark have both indicated they will run in the DFL primary. Clark did not take part in the endorsing convention
