Metsa running for Congress in 8th District

Rep. Jason Metsa, DFL-Virginia, testifies Monday during the first committee hearing on House Bill 760 about Local Government Aid .

VIRGINIA — Third-term State Rep. Jason Metsa, DFL-Virginia, is joining the race for the 8th Congressional District. Metsa is the fifth Democrat seeking the party endorsement and the fourth to launch a campaign since Congressman Rick Nolan announced he would retire and not seek another term last month.

A fifth-generation Iron Ranger, he said the decision to run wasn’t easy, but received encouragement from his family and Nolan to consider a bid. Jeff Anderson, the Duluth district director for Nolan and once a favorite to fill the seat, said Monday he would not run, while also endorsing Metsa.
