Rick Nolan wins DFL Endorsement
DULUTH - Today Rick Nolan won the DFL
endorsement in Minnesota's Eighth Congressional District,
and DFL Party Chair Ken Martin issued the following
"Congratulations to Rick Nolan on winning the DFL endorsement today in his race to unseat Chip Cravaack in Minnesota's Eighth Congressional District. Rick has built a strong campaign already and we look forward to working with him to make Chip Cravaack a one-term Congressman. We are in a strong position to win with Rick Nolan, and this November, we will be able to send a proven leader to represent northern Minnesota families in Washington once again.
"Rick Nolan's record of leadership show he's ready to win this seat and represent Minnesotans in Washington. When he last served Minnesotans in Congress, he earned a reputation for his strong judgment, priorities and willingness to stand up for what's right. Rick knows how to win, and he knows how to lead. He understands the importance of solving the real problems facing Minnesota families, and he will work to create jobs and strengthen the economic foundation in northern Minnesota and the rest of the state.
"I'm calling on all DFLers to get involved and help Rick succeed this fall, because Rick is an outstanding candidate and Minnesotans can't afford another two years of Chip Cravaack. Northern Minnesotans deserves a Representative who lives in Minnesota, not in New Hampshire. They deserve someone who'll stand up for their interests, not someone who's willing to end Medicare as we know it, slash financial aid for students, and allow insurance companies to once again deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Cravaack's goal in supporting these radical cuts is to give more tax breaks to his ultra-wealthy corporate friends. It's time to put a stop to Cravaack's reckless, Tea Party politics by electing Rick Nolan for Congress this fall."
