Minnesota Congressman Jim Oberstar is endorsing state Sen. Tarryl Clark, DFL-St.Cloud, in 6th district congressional bid.
Clark is seeking the DFL endorsement to run against incumbent Republican Congreswoman Michele Bachmann next fall. Oberstar praised Clark in a fundraising message to her supporters:
“Tarryl is a seasoned, experienced legislator,” Oberstar wrote. “She knows her district, and she knows central Minnesota. She knows the needs of the people of this area — their economic needs, their transportation needs, and their community service needs. She knows how to work in a legislative environment, to work across party lines and to bring people together for a consensus to build a better future for us in Minnesota.”
Dr. Maureen Reed is also a DFL candidate running in the 6th district.
