Cravaack Starts His Re-Election Run Early

U.S. House of Representatives

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Congressman Chip Cravaack says attack ads are pressuring him to begin running for re-election.

The Republican from Lindstrom tells the Duluth News Tribune he put his team together earlier than anticipated because he’s the main target of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Cravaack campaign says it’s already raised about $350,000.

For the DFL, Tarryl Clark, Jeff Anderson and Rick Nolan have announced they’ll run for Cravaack’s seat.

Cravaack also says his wife and kids plan to buy a house in New Hampshire. Cravaack says his wife often spends three days a week in the Boston area for her work with a medical supply company.

He plans to move to North Branch. Cravaack said he’ll spend most Saturdays in the 8th District and his Sundays in New Hampshire.
