GOP Hopefuls Bunched In Minn. 6th Money Race None of the would-be successors to retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann has an overwhelming money advantage in Minnesota's 6th District.
Minn. 6th District Candidate Krinkie Leaves Tax Group PostPhil Krinkie says he will leave his post as president of the Minnesota Taxpayers League because of his newly announced run for Congress. But the Republican hasn't decided if he'll stay on as a Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system trustee. Krinkie, a former state representative, announced last week that he is joining the race for the congressional seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann. Krinkie said Monday he was stepping down from the Taxpayers League after leading the anti-tax group since 2007.
