Michele Bachmann To Face Well-Funded Opposition

Posted by | October 13, 2009 00:03 | Filed under: Top Stories

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.
