Vice President Mike Pence will visit Duluth later this month to stump for the Republican-endorsed candidate for Congress. St. Louis County Commissioner Pete Stauber, who is running for the open 8th District seat representing northeast Minnesota, also got a boost from the White House this summer, when President Donald Trump held a rally in Duluth in June. Stauber is running in the Aug. 14 Republican primary against Harry Robb Welty. On the Democratic-Farmer-Labor side, a crowded primary field features Joe Radinovich, Jason Metsa, Kirsten Kennedy, Michelle Lee and Soren Christian Sorenson. The seat is currently held by U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, a Democrat, who isn’t seeking re-election; Nolan is running for lieutenant governor on the ticket of Attorney General Lori Swanson. The Duluth News-Tribune reported Pence will be attending an Aug. 8 fundraiser for the Stauber Victory Fund, where attendees can pay $2,700 per person for a photo opportunity with Pence and $1,000 per person to attend a reception with Pence. Further details weren’t immediately available.
