Minnesota Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan announced Friday he won't seek re-election, handing Republicans a rare opportunity to pick up a seat this fall.

Don’t care about “Rick who”. I’m surprised that there are area of Marxist Minnesota that aren’t red havens and jihadist territory, given the history of the state.
