Email News Alerts

Chip Cravaack gained national attention two years ago when he upset long-time U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar, but early Wednesday he lost to a congressman who served three decades ago.


Democrat Rick Nolan upset Cravaack in a razor-thin win.

Meanwhile, Democratic U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar breezed to an easy re-election victory Tuesday and most U.S. House members from Minnesota won.

Rep. Michele Bachmann remained in a virtual tie early Wednesday with Jim Graves.
