Wadena County: solidly in the red column

Republican Chip Cravaack took 3,020 votes (55.97 percent) in the county to longtime Democrat incumbent James Oberstar's 2,049 votes (37.97 percent) in the U.S. House of Representatives race. The 8th District upset was much narrower in the rest of northeast Minnesota.
