Congressman Rick Nolan announced yesterday that Joe Radinovich, who previously served in the Minnesota House of Representatives, will manage his campaign for re-election this year to Congress in Minnesota's Eight Congressional District. 

Nolan defeated Republican Stewart Mills in 2014 by less than 4000 votes and Mills announced in October that he would challenge Nolan again in 2016

In a statement released by his campaign, Nolan said "Joe is one of us," and he praised Radinovich's work in the Minnesota Legislature and his work as an assistant commissioner of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB).

Nolan added that Radinovich, "has demonstrated his commitment to the policies necessary to rebuild our middle class."

According to the press release from Nolan's campaign, Radinovich will start his work on Nolan's campaign within the next few weeks. 

Nolan ended 2015 with good news, as he was recently recognized as one of the effective members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
