Rick Nolan’s possible campaign for the 8th Congressional District seat was featured this week in a column written by Stuart Rothenberg that appeared in the Rothenberg Political Report and in Roll Call.
The most interesting tidbit was Rothenberg’s observation on how the cost of political campaigns has skyrocketed since Nolan, of rural Crosslake, last ran for Congress in 1978.
