Nolan might try another run for Congress


Longtime DFL activist Rick Nolan of the Crosslake area is considering another run for Congress.

The three-term congressman, who served on Capitol Hill in the mid-1970s, spoke to Crow Wing County and Senate District 12 DFLers Saturday. He said he’s giving a run for the 8th Congressional District seat now held by Rep. Chip Cravaack, R-Minn, “real, serious consideration.”

I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
