Virginia, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Eighth district congressional candidate, Rick Nolan, has been endorsed by the United Steelworkers District 11.

The USW endorsed Nolan Wednesday in Virginia, saying that he has a solid support for mining and strengthening middle class families.

"I grew up on the Cuyana Range. My family has been here for six generations. I always have and I always will support mining, because it is the backbone of our Iron Range and provides good jobs for our communities," said Nolan.

USW Representative Bob Ryan says, "We know that Rick Nolan will fight for mining jobs and to rebuild the middle class in Congress. Rick supports our mining industry and knows how to get things done. Rick has served in the Congress. He is an effective leader who will put the working men and women of northern Minnesota first. He is someone we can trust to fight for jobs and work to preserve pensions, health care benefits and Medicare."
