District 1

Tim Walz of the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party represents Minnesota's first congressional district. Days after Walz was re-elected in the 2014 elections, Tony Cornish, a Republican member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, indicated that he would run against Walz in the 2016 election. Cornish indicated that the Republican primary became too crowded in 2014 for him to enter the race.[1]

District 8

Democrat Rick Nolan, who represents Minnesota's eighth congressional district, defeated Republican Stewart Mills in the 2014 election. Mills is considering running again in 2016.[2]
