Michele Bachmann To Face Well-Funded Opposition
Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann is going to to have a fight on her hands when she runs for re-election. A Democratic primary is shaping up with two well-funded opponents.
The party establishment favorite, state Sen. Tarryl Clark, announced Monday that she has raised in impressive $308,000 since declaring her candidacy July 28. The campaign will report just under $270,000 in the bank at the end of September.
Physician Maureen Reed, Clark’s rival for the Democratic nomination, announced a $130,000 fundraising quarter. After taking in more than $200,000 in the second quarter, the former Independent Party lieutenant governor candidate has over $300,000 cash on hand.
Bachmann’s 6th District leans Repubican, so let’s hope Democrats unite behind one candidate before election time.Click here for reuse options!
