Thursday, August 9th, 2012 at 7:17 am

Big money is being spent to try and sway voters for Democrats Tarryl Clark and Rick Nolan in Minnesota’s 8th district and a good portion is coming from outside groups.

Washington-based Emily’s List reported putting $85,000 into TV ads for Clark on Tuesday. Emily’s List helps women candidates who support abortion rights. They have spent nearly $170,000 on the race since late July.

Nolan is getting help from the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. They have spent $137,000 on TV ads and mail pieces since mid-July. Nolan is the party’s endorsed candidate.

The winner of next week’s primary between Clark, Nolan and Jeff Anderson will challenge republican chip Cravaack in November.
