Eighth District Republican Congressman Chip Cravaack’s re-election campaign says Cravaack has the endorsements of two elected officials who backed a Democrat in the primary.
Both Ely Mayor Roger Skraba and St. Louis County Commissioner Mike Forsman had endorsed Democrat Jeff Anderson in the primary race to nominate a Democrat to run against Cravaack. Rick Nolan won the primary and will face Cravaack in November.
A release from the Cravaack campaign quoted both Skraba and Forsman.
“Three of the biggest reasons I support Chip: his leadership on the BWCA land swap, his unwavering support for mining, and his strong opposition to any additional gun control. Chip will be good for our communities and good for jobs,” said Skraba.
“Like me, Chip is a union man and a veteran. I’ve been a lifelong Democrat, but I’ll be splitting my ticket in November and voting for Chip Cravaack for Congress,” said Forsman.
