Two Democrats running in a northeastern Minnesota primary are lagging in the money chase. Former Rep. Rick Nolan had $93,000 as July began, while former Duluth City Councilor Jeff Anderson had $18,000. That compares with $259,000 for former state Sen. Tarryl Clark.
The state DFL party has endorsed former congressman Rick Nolan to oppose Republican U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack in the state's 8th Congressional District. But DFLer Tarryl Clark says she'll take her campaign to the primary.
St. Cloud's Tarryl Clark has more company in the race to unseat Chip Cravaack. An Iraq war veteran and former staffer to U.S. Sen. Al Franken is joining the Democratic race in northern Minnesota's 8th Congressional District.
