The Kennedy family lent some of their political star power to the race for Minnesota's 8th District. 

Rep. Joe Kennedy, III (D-Mass.) stopped by Carmody Irish Pub in Duluth to stump for Congressman Rick Nolan. The grandson of Robert "Bobby" Kennedy works with Nolan in the U.S. House where Nolan's campaign says they have taken on education issues together. Despite being engulfed in politics from an early age, Joe Kennedy says he still has learned a few things from Nolan. 

"Rick's been an extraordinary example," Kennedy said. "With integrity and perseverance and remembering that politics - more than anything else - is about people and your constituents. He personifies that, and he's been able to lead and succeed on that. It's a great lesson for the rest of us.

Republican businessman Stewart Mills is challenging Nolan for his seat in November.
