Minnesota 6th Congressional District
One more name just entered the race for Minnesota’s 6th congressional district. Sartell Mayor Joe Perske announced his intention to land the Democratic Farm Labor Party nomination for U.S. Congress.
Republican State Senator John Pederson has joined the race to try to succeed Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in Minnesota’s 6th District. “I have very strong beliefs about the future of our country,” Pederson said. “I believe I have the qualifications that will enable me to effectively represent the interests of the people in the 6th Congressional District.”
In the end they both bowed out. Michele Bachmann announced her decision to drop out of the race for Minnesota’s 6th District via YouTube, while Jim Graves sent out an email statement.
