Sixth Congressional District Republicans
The Pioneer Press has an article about the four people who are running for the Republican nomination in the Sixth Congressional District, comprising the north and west suburbs.
Here's the rundown:
State Senator Michelle Bachmann: She hates teh gay.
Jay Esmay: Who???
State Representative Phil Krinkie: Dr. No. He adamantly opposes government in almost any form that spends money. I think he's okay with government getting into your bedroom, though.
State Representative Jim Knoblach: Sounds like Jimmy Stewart. Also doesn't care much for spending of state dollars, particularly for programs that are popular in his neck of the woods like the Northstar line.
All of them are trying to stake out positions to the right of everybody else. What fun! None of these people is really going to light the fires of voters in the district (although neither is Ellwyn Tinklenberg), so if they think that being the most conservative is going to win, that will make for an interesting election.
