I just got my hands on a fundraiser that says U.S. Sen. Al Franken, MN House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, MN Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will host a fundraiser for state Sen. Tarryl Clark’s campaign for Congress.
The fundraiser comes on the heels of a campaign finance report that showed DFL Congressmen Jim Oberstar, Keith Ellison and Collin Peterson donated to Clark’s campaign.
Clark is seeking the DFL nomination against Maureen Reed. Whoever wins the nomination will face off against GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann.
MPR’s Tim Pugmire takes a look at the contest between Clark and Reed.
