Three area DFL candidates share some conversation and a laugh as they relax at the Bella Café while campaigning in and around Park Rapids on Monday. Former Sixth District Congressman Rick Nolan is running for congress in the Eighth Congressional District, former State Representative Brita Sailer is vying to return to the Minnesota House in House District 2B, and Congressman Collin Peterson is seeking his 12th two-year term as congressman from the Seventh Congressional District. The boundary line that separates the 7th and 8th congressional districts includes the Clearwater-Hubbard, Becker-Hubbard, and Otter Tail-Wadena county lines. Minnesota House 2B includes most of Becker County from the Hubbard County line west and almost to Detroit Lakes, and includes the cities of Frazee, Park Rapids, Menahga and Mahnomen and the areas in between.
