Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Democratic Congressman Rick Nolan is receiving some out of state support this election cycle as he gears up for November.

On Thursday the Congressman was joined at Carmody's Irish Pub, in Duluth, by Democratic U.S. Representative Joseph Kennedy III--the grandson of the late Senator Robert "Bobby" Kennedy.

Both lawmakers have co–sponsored the "Bank on Student's Emergency Refinancing Act", which aims to lessen the burden of student loan debt for 40 million Americans.

According to Representative Kennedy, Congressman Nolan has displayed the "can–do" attitude needed in a divided Congress.

"First year in office, Washington was able to get through and sign into law 56 bills of substance," said Rep. Kennedy. "Congressman Nolan had two of those bills, not to mention a number of amendments that have been driven by the policies here, in his district, to try to make sure that it is people that are driving that policy, and not the other way around."

Congressman Nolan will be facing off against Republican candidate, and Fleet Farm businessman, Stewart Mills in November.
