8th Congressional District
The 8th District encompasses about 18 Minnesota counties -- mostly rural and farmland. It includes Duluth, Cloquet, Chisolm, Hibbing, Grand Rapids, International Falls, and Brainerd. The nation's largest deposits of iron here were discovered there in the 1800s -- thus the nickname "Iron Range" that is bestowed upon much of the region. This has been a DFL district for generations, and Rep. Jim Oberstar has held the seat since 1974.
