Rep. Nolan considering gubernatorial run

73-year-old Congressman Rick Nolan is weighing a run for governor in 2016.

J. Patrick Coolican at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Nolan would be a high profile addition to the DFL field. He represents the 8th Congressional District in northeastern Minnesota, winning a tough re-election fight in 2016 despite a bad year for his party, especially in greater Minnesota.

This is Nolan’s second go around in Congress, now in his third term after serving three terms in the 1970s.

Having endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, Nolan could unite DFL progressives with rural moderates that he represents in Congress.
