Rick Nolan won on Election Day, but his challenger millionaire Stewart Mills III isn't giving up. Mills is forcing a costly recount, and Rick needs our help now. Rick is one of the most effective, most progressive legislators in Congress. Don't take our word for it. Listen to Rick's hometown newspaper: “With each passing year, this becomes increasingly clear: U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, simply put, is good for Duluth, good for the Iron Range and good for Northeastern Minnesota.” —Duluth News Tribune endorsement, 10/8/2016.
Rick is a leader in the effort to overturn Citizens United. He sponsored a Constitutional Amendment declaring that money is not speech, and corporations are not people, and a Resolution directing the Federal Elections Commission to create a public finance system for congressional elections, limit campaign spending, prohibit voter suppression, and stop gerrymandering. If our democracy matters to you as much as it does to us, please help Rick by donating generously now. Money tight? Then sign up with Mike "Phone Guy" Fox to make easy but important get out the vote calls from your own home. Your help will make the difference!
Most Congressional districts are gerrymandered to ensure an easy win for the incumbent. This district is different. Minnesota's 8th is one of the most competitive in the country. With our help, Rick won re-election in 2014, although by less than 2%. The Tea Party and the GOP poured $millions into the district, slamming Rick with misleading attack ads. Now that Rick won again, his opponent is trying to overturn the result.
