Tarryl Clark To Face Duluth Councilman In DFL Primary

DULUTH (AP) – A Duluth city councilman on Wednesday announced his plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District.

Jeff Anderson says he’s been hearing from an increasing number of residents, including some who voted for Cravaack, who are “not impressed” with the way the Republican freshman congressman has represented the district.

The 34-year-old Anderson is a small business owner and radio sales executive in Duluth. Anderson says Cravaack’s “extreme Tea Party views” aren’t in line with the district’s constituents.

Anderson will likely face former 6th District Congress challenger Tarryl Clark of St. Cloud in a primary after Clark announced she and her husband bought a townhome in Duluth and she planned to run against Cravaack herself.

Cravaack unseated 18-term Democrat Jim Oberstar in November.

The 8th District covers portions of 18 counties in northeastern Minnesota.
