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

    This isn’t even worth printing it on paper. Democrats rarely ever care about endorsements as they so often end up in primary elections. It would not surprise me if at least one of their other candidates forced a primary in this campaign as well.

    Aside from that, Representative Chip Cravaack has done more good during his first term than Oberstar did in 20 years. He’ll continue to be a great representative for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District.
