Dayton Endorses Rick Nolan
Governor Mark Dayton has decided to endorse former U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan in the race for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District.
Dayton says is a “proven leader who can get past the partisan gridlock and get things done.”
Former Duluth City Councilor Jeff Anderson and former state Sen. Tarryl Clark, who was recently endorsed by former President Bill Clinton, are also on the Aug. 14 primary ballot. The winner of the primary will challenge Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District in November.
Nolan served in Congress from 1975 to 1981 in northern Minnesota. He also has the backing of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.
