ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - National Republicans are pouring roughly $1 million in advertisements in September alone into Minnesota's 8th Congressional District in their bid to unseat Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan.

The National Republican Congressional Committee's big ad buy at Twin Cities TV stations, outlined in public filings this week, is just the latest sign that the northeastern Minnesota district will be a big-dollar battleground this fall. Roughly half of the households in the 8th District are in the Twin Cities TV viewing area.

The new ads will start to air next week. Nolan is facing GOP challenger and businessman Stewart Mills.

Political observers have pegged Nolan as among the most vulnerable incumbents this fall, and the outside money has followed. With national Republicans' latest ad buy, more than $2 million in advertisements have poured into the newly competitive district.
