Nolan Runs in the 8th District

A former Congressman from Minnesota's 6th District, says he will run in Minnesota's 8th district.

Richard Nolan announced he will challenge Freshman Republican Congressman Chip Cravaack.

Nolan declared America is at a tipping point, and the middle class is under assault by the Republican Party, big corporations and powerful special interests.

Nolan formally entered the 8th District race Wednesday.

Nolan represented Minnesota’s old 6th District from 1975 to 1981. He said it became clear after three months of pre-campaign meetings with DFL party leaders and citizens throughout the 18 counties of the 8th that “people don’t feel like they matter anymore when decisions are being made in Washington.

Nolan, a resident of Crosby and a Brainerd High School graduate, is touring the district to promote his candidacy.
