Unendorsed Dayton supports Endorsed Nolan

I enjoy the irony of this. Mark Dayton who got elected Governor without the DFL endorsement is supporting the Eighth District DFL Congressional candidate who got the endorsement Rick Nolan. I would guess that this is mostly a pragmatic decision with Mark looking for the strongest candidate but I’ll bet he and Nolan feel like fraternity members of the 1970’s as well when they bot got into politics.

The one line in the email appeal which was sent to me – twice – (damn overlapping data bases) that I thought was the funniest suggested that Nolan had once before been the Eighth District’s representative to Congress: “And I hope you’ll help me help him– because it’s time we had a fighter like Rick Nolan representing the 8th once again.”

He wasn’t.
