Heading into primary, Clark gets Clinton's backing

ST. PAUL — Democrat Tarryl Clark has picked up the support of former President Bill Clinton as she faces two primary rivals in northeastern Minnesota's 8th Congressional District.

Clark's campaign announced the endorsement Friday.

Clark is running against former Rep. Rick Nolan and former Duluth City Councilor Jeff Anderson in the Aug. 14 primary. The winner will challenge Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack in November.

Clinton headlined a rally for Clark in Blaine two years ago during her unsuccessful bid to unseat Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann in the 6th District. Clark moved to the 8th District last year before starting her current campaign.
