In an unsurprising move, since he was taking no action to become a candidate other than to not rule out running, state House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) said yesterday that he will not enter the Iron Range 8th District open US House race, and was almost equally definitive that he won’t run for Governor. St. Louis County Commissioner Pete Stauber continues as the leading Republican candidate for the open congressional district, a seat that Republicans believe will be converted. In the last two elections, retiring Rep. Rick Nolan (D-Crosby/Duluth) has won by 1.4 percentage points (2014), and less than ½ percent (2016).
