2 Want 6th Seat

Two Democrats want to unseat Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District representative, Michele Bachmann, who has become one of the most-quoted Republicans in Congress.

Bachmann, who represents a Minnesota district stretching from the eastern Twin Cities to St. Cloud, faces challenges by Elwyn Tinklenberg and Maureen Reed.

Tinklenberg lost to Bachmann last year, but tells media outlets he wants to try again. He is a former state transportation commissioner.

Reed, a Redwood Falls native, is a one-time Independence Party lieutenant governor candidate. She is a medical doctor.
