Dems on defense in Minnesota House race
August 23, 2017
NORTH BRANCH, Minn. – There’s a congressional race unfolding in Minnesota in a way that could prove to be a test tube for 2020.
A Democratic member of Congress who held onto his seat by less than a percentage point in a district President Trump dominated by more than 15 percent is counting on prominent progressives to help secure his seat, while downplaying the potential impact of his party’s most recent presidential nominee.
Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan told Fox News his surrogate wish list ahead of the midterms included Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
Would he want a visit from Hillary Clinton?
“Absolutely,” Nolan said, before adding a caveat. “If we can educate her in the presence here, and bring her to a better place that’s more in keeping with where we’d like to see this country go, Hallelujah.”
