Nolan Announces He Will Not Run For Re-Election

Nolan Announces He Will Not Run For Re-Election”

U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan said Friday that he will not run for re-election when his term ends in 2018. More than $17 million was spent in a district of about 650,000 voters.

Nolan says he's stepping aside to give other candidates plenty of time to build campaigns. They have been incredibly patient and supportive.

After a 32-year gap, he was then elected to Congress again in 2012 when he defeated first-term Republican incumbent Chip Cravaack in the race to represent the 8th District. Nolan's decision opens a swing set in northeastern Minnesota's 8th congressional district, which includes Duluth and most of the Iron Range. But he faced another certain barrage from Republicans who see a chance to win one of a few Democratic districts that President Donald Trump won.

So without Nolan running for reelection, Republicans will have a strong shot at flipping the seat. He's raised $256,000 this cycle and has $136,600 on hand. The National Republican Congressional Committee, the House GOP's campaign arm, has designated him as part of its "Young Guns" program for promising recruits. Leah Phifer, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation counterterrorism analyst, was preparing for an endorsement battle shaped by her criticism of Nolan's push to expedite mining projects on the Iron Range.

Nolan's recent elections have been among the most competitive and expensive in the nation.

"We now have one of the strongest recruits in the country, Pete Stauber, in the race who's garnering strong local support", Gorman said in a statement. "We are looking forward to bringing new, Republican representation to Northern Minnesota in November".
