The Associated Press has called Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District DFL primary in favor of Rick Nolan.
Nolan, who represented Minnesota in the U.S. House from 1974 to 1981 will challenge GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack this fall.
Late Tuesday night, Nolan had nearly 40 percent of the vote with 70 percent of the precincts reporting results. His opponents Tarryl Clark and Jeff Anderson were splitting the difference.
Nolan was not the top fundraiser in the race. He had brought in only $357,655 since the start of the race, while Clark raised $1.1 million, much of it coming from her wide fundraising network outside the 8th District and the state. Anderson only raised $172,359, according to the most recent campaign filings.
