U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to headline a Sunday fundraiser for Rick Nolan, the DFL candidate running for Congress in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District.
The fundraiser, which also features Gov. Dayton and every DFL member of Minnesota’s Congressional delegation, will be at the home of Archie and Tina Smith. Tina Smith serves as Gov. Dayton’s chief of staff.
Donors are being asked to give between $250 and $2,500.
Nolan is looking to unseat GOP U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack in what is shaping up to be the fiercest congressional race in the state. Political handicappers say the race is a toss-up.
Outside groups on both sides have also spent heavily to win the race.
