While both candidates in Minnesota’s sixth U.S. congressional district could benefit from some deep wrinkle cream, it was a no-brainer for us to endorse Michele Bachmann for re-election to a third term.
While Democrat Tarryl Clark is a more legitimate challenger than Bachmann has faced since rising to office, Clark crossed an ethics line in our book when she used a Bachmann ad tagline, “I’m Michele Bachmann and I approve this message” as a pseudo-endorsement of one of Clark’s own anti-Bachmann commercials. It was intentionally misleading and unfair.
Clark has a lot to learn before being ready to unseat Bachmann; meanwhile, Bachmann has been one of Minnesota’s most influential members of Congress on the national stage. She deserves a third term to continue her work. That’s why WonderfulPessimist.com endorses Michele Bachmann for Minnesota’s sixth U.S. Congressional District.
