U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan (DFL) won't run for re-election in 8th District

http://www.startribune.com/nolan-won-t-run-for-re-election/473572863/

U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan said Friday that he will not run for re-election when his term ends in 2018.

"Now is the time for me to pass the baton to the next generation," Nolan said in a statement announcing his retirement.

Nolan, 74, has won two tough re-election battles in his northeastern Minnesota district since his election in 2012.

After a months-long dalliance with a run for governor in 2018, Nolan announced last summer that he would run for re-election in the Eighth Congressional District.

In a one-page statement issued Friday, he promised to "finish strong" the remaining months of his term.

2. I'm glad he spared the state from the spoiled frat boy Stuart Mills.

But I respect his decision. Time for some new blood.

4. Disagree. I appreciated having his experience and seniority representing me, which really could

have paid off if a blue wave were to come in 2018.

5. Fair point, to be sure.

I know former Duluth mayor Don Ness has kind of removed himself from politics but I should would love to see him throw his hat in the ring.

6. I'm not a fan.

I'd rather see Jeff Anderson step forward.

7. I've seen some chitchat that his daughter, who has been living with advanced lung cancer for several

years, has taken a turn for the worse recently. That makes the timing of this make more sense to me.

8. Jeff Anderson, Joe Radinovich, Kirsten Kennedy, maybe Tony Lourey, maybe Michelle Lee (hee!)...

any other names popping up?

10. Maybe Metsa, who got a shoutout from Anderson when he said he wasn't running.

9. Stewart Mills the Third says he's not running. Daudt still might but increasingly probably not, so

it looks like Stauber will have clear sailing while the DFL fights among themselves and has to deal with Skip Sandman on the outside.
