Oberstar remembered

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Former Minnesota Congressman Jim Oberstar is being remembered.

Oberstar died Saturday at the age of 79.

The Democrat, who was born in Chisholm, represented the state's 8th Congressional district--including the cities of Duluth, Brainerd, Grand Rapids, International Falls and Hibbing from 1975 through 2011.

President Obama praised Oberstar for his 36 years of service to improving America's infrastructure, creating opportunity for hard-working minnesotans and building a strong economy for future generations of americans.

Oberstar is survived by his wife, four children and eight grandchildren.
