WASHINGTON – Former DFL Rep. Jim Oberstar sat down with MPR’s Cathy Wurzer this morning to talk about his time in Washington D.C. and his plans now that he’s been defeated by GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack.
One item that was discussed was the possibility that he could make a run for his old seat. Wurzer asked the question because a labor newspaper in Duluth reported that Oberstar isn’t ruling it out.
“Things have changed and I’m moving in another direction,” Oberstar said.
“So that’s a no?” Wurzer asked.
“Let’s not close any doors,” Oberstar replied.
Oberstar emphasized, however that he doesn’t see any “such circumstance” that he could run for his old 8th Congressional District seat.
