The low-turnout, high-stakes primary race in Minnesota’s northern Eighth Congressional District is capturing the big bucks from outside groups.
According to filings with the Federal Election Commission, the Minnesota DFL spent $135,000 in July to create and air an ad promoting their endorsee Rick Nolan, and Women Vote!, an arm of female candidate funders EMILY’s List, spent about $80,000 to make and air a spot supporting their pick, Tarryl Clark.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
